A sell-out crowd of 15,578 for the noon kick-off saw Cardiff take a 21st minute lead, when Joe Ralls was allowed space to deliver a low cross from the left of the box, and Immers swept home a low drive from 12 yards at the far post.

Any doubt about the result was removed seven minutes from time when O'Keefe headed home from close range after a Tom Lawrence shot had been tipped onto the bar by Richard O'Donnell.

With Bruno Ecuele Manga outstanding at the back, Cardiff repelled Bristol's attacks and emerged worthy winners.

Today's win will boost manager Russell Slade's hopes of taking his side into the top six.

Cardiff City slipped further off the Championship play off pace as they were held to a draw by Nottingham Forest at the City Stadium.

The visitors went ahead after 9 minutes when Oliver Burke intercepted Joe Ralls' pass, the 18 year old producing a superb finish to leave David Marshall with no chance.

But Cardiff's Aron Gunnarsson swiftly levelled things, the Icelandic international putting the ball in the net after 13 minutes.

Cardiff had chances to take the lead, but wasteful finishing meant they had to settle for a point.

The result leaves Russell Slade's men tenth in the Championship table, six points off the play off places.

The Bluebirds host Blackburn on Saturday.

In a goalless first half with few chances for either side, Alex Revell’s wayward strike after 15 minutes was the closest the Bluebirds came to opening the scoring.

Although the away side pushed for an equaliser, 1-0 was how the score stayed. Cardiff now sit ninth in the Championship table, three points outside the play-off places.
