Craig Conway made history as he secured Cardiff's 10th successive home victory with 10 minutes remaining against Sheffield Wednesday and sent the Bluebirds back to the top with a 1-0 win.
The Scot finally made the breakthrough with a left-footed drive that meant his side leapfrogged Crystal Palace back to the summit and took their places in the Cardiff record books.
In the second period Gary Madine almost fired Dave Jones' men into the lead against his manager's former employers, only to be denied by the reactions of David Marshall.
Just when it looked like Wednesday would end the only 100 per cent home record in English league football, Conway intervened with his first goal of the season.
Burnley substitute Sam Vokes headed an 89th-minute equaliser to snatch a 1-1 draw against bitter rivals Blackburn in the east Lancashire derby.
The match was billed in some quarters as a shoot-out between Blackburn striker Jordan Rhodes and free-scoring Burnley counterpart Charlie Austin, and the latter found Rovers goalkeeper Paul Robinson in inspired form.
Robinson also did superbly to thwart Martin Paterson and, having weathered the storm; Rovers drove forward after the restart.
They broke through in the 65th minute when Rhodes caught Burnley's back line flat-footed and found space to head home Mauro Formica's right-wing cross.
But it was another striker, Wales international Vokes, who brought Turf Moor to its feet, planting a free-kick from fellow substitute Junior Stanislas beyond Robinson three minutes after replacing Chris McCann.
Blackburn have only one win from seven games since Henning Berg's appointment as manager and lie ninth in the npower Championship - one point and five places above Burnley.
