A brace from Campbell sees the league new boys come back from behind.
Premier League new boys Cardiff City secured an unlikely 3-2 victory against Manchester City after falling behind in the game.
It looked like the same old story after a goalless first half, when Edin Dzeko scored a superb strike to give the Citizens the lead against Malky Mackay’s men.
However, former Manchester United youth player Fraizer Campbell came into the striker’s own and a shot from the Englishman was parried by Joe Hart before Aron Gunnarsson put in the equaliser.
The Blue Birds then exposed City’s fragility from set pieces as a corner from Peter Whittingham caused all sorts of problems in the box and Campbell bundled the ball in to give Cardiff the lead.
Another corner shortly afterwards left the 2012 English champions in disarray and the fans in the Welsh capital were sent into raptures when Campbell bagged a second goal.
Suddenly new City boss Manuel Pellegrini didn’t look so invincible, but the Chilean wasn’t about to give up and urged the visitors to push forward.
The away side threw everything they had at hosts and it paid off when £22m signing Alvaro Negredo scored the forward’s first goal for the club, when the Spaniard netted from a David Silva assist.
With eight minutes of injury time the Citizens pushed on for an equalising effort and City thought they had it when Sergio Aguero put the ball in the net – only for the assistant referee to rule the Argentine as offside.
The final whistle came and Mackay’s men were proud of their efforts, as were an ecstatic crowd, whilst Pellegrini is left to wonder what went wrong.
