Leeds United secured a second successive league win to ease the pressure on manager Garry Monk and keep Cardiff in the bottom three of the Championship.
Chris Wood's fourth goal in six games, a 62nd-minute penalty rolled home in confident fashion, and Pablo Hernandez's first Leeds goal eight minutes from time secured a well-merited 2-0 success.
The three points moves Leeds towards the heady heights of mid-table after a fraught start to the season, Monk now having won four of his past six games in all competitions.
Cardiff's campaign, however, is showing little sign of flickering into life with only one victory so far this season.

Leeds are expected to unveil former Swansea manager Garry Monk as the club's new head coach on Thursday afternoon.
Monk, 37, is understood to have agreed to become Leeds' seventh boss in just over two years under Italian owner Massimo Cellino.
The club said in a short statement: "Leeds United will be holding a press conference at Elland Road this afternoon (2.30pm, Thursday June 2) to unveil a new key appointment for the club."
Leeds fans' group Time To Go Massimo plan to park an advertisement van with a huge 'For Sale' sign outside Elland Road in a bid to help owner Massimo Cellino sell the club.
Cellino, 59, charged by the Football Association with breaching regulations surrounding agents on Wednesday, said last week he wished he had never bought the club and reiterated his desire to leave Elland Road.
The group said in a statement:
Time To Go Massimo wish to extend any help we can give to Massimo Cellino in his aim of selling Leeds United Football Club.
To this end, we have ordered from Drive-By Media a 5m x 2.5m 'FOR SALE' advertisement in the manner of a second-hand car advert to be parked outside the East Stand entrance (on Thursday) from 2pm to help him in his endeavour.
'FOR SALE - URGENT. One football club, used to be a great runner but now a project in dire need of restoration after several careless owners. Does not include stadium or training ground and may be liable to court cases. Willing seller, loyal but very fed up fan base. Price negotiable, unlimited potential.'
We hope that this, alongside Massimo's very well placed advertisement in The Times last Friday will hasten any and all enquirers into making an offer, and relieving Massimo of this sad, and lonely part of his life, and we will do all we can to help him return to his family who we are sure miss him dearly.
Leeds have been charged by the Football Association with breaching the governing body's football agent regulations.
The charge alleging misconduct refers to the transfer of Ross McCormack to Fulham in July 2014, the FA said in a statement.
Scottish striker McCormack left Elland Road in a deal worth £11m. Leeds, owner Massimo Cellino and authorised agent Derek Day have all been charged and have until May 20 to respond.
The FA said on its website: "Leeds United have been charged for breaching the FA's football agent regulations. The alleged misconduct relates to the transaction involving the transfer of Ross McCormack from Leeds to Fulham on 8 July 2014."
