Something a bit different

After 98 meetings between these two sides throoughout their history, this is the first metting outside of league competition.

Both sets of players have emerged from the tunnel and kick off is just moments away.

PNE get the game underway!

Emil Riis is played down the right channel but his cross is blocked.

It’s played short to McCann but Bauer is offside for the cross.

A corner comes in from the right and it’s cleared as far as Marlon Pack on the edge of the box and his volley is way too high.

Johnson drags it wide

Daniel Johnson takes aim from the right side of the area but he drags the shot past the near post.

Cardiff break from halfway and Davies is played in on goal but cannot keep his composure and steers his shot past the near post.

Cunningham crosses from the left and Potts meets it but he’s a way out and his header is off target anyway.
