Kenedy blows late penalty as Newcastle draw at Cardiff

Kenedy blew an injury-time penalty as Newcastle United drew 0-0 at Cardiff City on Saturday.

Cardiff City goalkeeper Neil Etheridge saved an injury-time penalty from 10-man Newcastle's Kenedy, as the newly promoted hosts earned a first point of the Premier League season in dramatic fashion.

A full-blooded and evenly contested first half contained chances at both ends, and Kenedy was lucky not to be sent off for kicking Victor Camarasa off the ball.

Backed by a raucous home crowd, Cardiff dominated after the break and should have led when Kenneth Zohore headed wide, before Newcastle substitute Isaac Hayden was dismissed for scything down Josh Murphy from behind.

And for a second match in succession, Etheridge saved a spot-kick to prompt jubilant celebrations among Cardiff fans who minutes earlier had seemed disappointed by the prospect of a goalless draw.
