OX5za9uIqbwk
After an emotional pregame, Cardiff City and their fans enjoyed an early lead thanks to Bobby Reid's penalty kick.

Bobby Decordova-Reid has scored plenty of goals in his career, but few will have meant as much as Saturday’s opener against Bournemouth at Cardiff City Stadium.

Coming in the first match since Bluebirds record signing Emiliano Sala was presumed lost at sea after his plane disappeared en route to Wales, Decordova-Reid showed a shirt with the image of Sala to the Cardiff faithful.

The penalty came after an obvious handball in the Bournemouth box, and a win would be immense for Cardiff’s hopes of staving off relegation. The Bluebirds entered the day five points back of 17th place Burnley.
