Cardiff levelled things up on 53 minutes with a Peter Whittingham free-kick from a tight angle on the right that flew into the bottom corner.
Then Don Cowie grabbed the winner for the Bluebirds in the 62nd minute with a smart volley after after Aron Gunnarson's throw had been flicked into the penalty area.
