CARDIFF CITY 1 BURNLEY 2

Sept 30 (Reuters) - Cardiff City missed a chance to move out of the Premier League’s bottom three by conceding two poor goals in a 2-1 home defeat by Burnley on Sunday.

The visitors’ Icelandic international Johann Berg Gudmundsson headed the opening goal in the 52nd minute from Charlie Taylor’s cross but eight minutes later Josh Murphy, who had earlier hit a post, scored a deserved Cardiff equaliser.

Weak defending allowed Welsh international Sam Vokes to head the winning goal from Gudmundsson’s volleyed cross.

A fourth successive defeat left promoted Cardiff second bottom with two points from seven games while Burnley’s first away win pushed them into mid-table. (Reporting by Steve Tongue, editing by Ed Osmond)
