LONDON – Neil Etheridge was Cardiff's hero as the goalkeeper saved a last-gasp penalty from Kenedy to salvage a 0-0 draw against 10-man Newcastle on Saturday.
Rafael Benitez's side were reduced to 10 men in the 66th minute when half-time substitute Isaac Hayden was sent off for an ugly foul on Josh Murphy.
But it was Newcastle who had the best chance to claim a first Premier League win this season despite their numerical disadvantage.
However, on-loan Chelsea midfielder Kenedy wasted the opportunity as his weak penalty in the 96th minute was easily saved by Etheridge.
Kenedy's blunder capped a frustrating afternoon for Newcastle, whose travelling fans once again protested at the lack of investment from owner Mike Ashley with chants of "Get out of our club" throughout the goalless stalemate.
