The Championship outfit made eight changes from their league opener against Blackburn, and goals from Guido Burgstaller and Kadeem Harris were enough after Shaun Miller's consolation.

It took four minutes for Cardiff to take the lead, when a long ball found Nicky Maynard, and the striker's flick eventually fell to Burgstaller who finished inside the area.

The second half was much more of a contest, but Cardiff got the crucial second in the 79th minute. Two substitutes combined - as Mats Daehli's whipped cross was turned in by Harris at the back post.

The Sky Blues' own substitutes provided them with a glimmer of hope, when Miller finished Ryan Haynes' cross from close range.

And the hosts could have taken the game to extra time but Andy Webster's header fizzed just wide.

But that was the last action as the Championship side progressed to the next round.
