Cardiff goalkeeper Neil Etheridge was the hero for his team, saving a 96th minute penalty to secure Cardiff's first point of the season.
They drew 0-0 at home to Newcastle but were prepared for defeat when the referee pointed to the spot deep into stoppage time after Sean Morrison had handled in the area.
Kenedy stepped up to take the penalty for Newcastle but Etheridge went the right way, keeping it out and the final whistle sounded immediately afterwards to leave the game goalless.
Both sides lost their opening game so got off the mark with a point and Etheridge took the positives after the game, telling Sky Sports: "We could have won it, but with a penalty in the last minute I will take a point and be happy to move onto next week.
"We don't want that to become a regular occurrence [conceding and saving a penalty], but we deserved at least a point. We knew we would have a chance at home and needed to get points on the board.
"It is not easy to step up in the 90th minute and take a penalty, but today I came out victorious."
Newcastle, though regretting the penalty miss, had the consolation of getting a point after having had to play much of the second half with 10 men, Isaac Hayden seeing red for a challenge on Josh Murphy.
Cardiff went close through Kenneth Zohore who had a header cleared off the line but failed to make their extra man advantage pay, though they were grateful the late penalty drama at least enabled them to escape with a point.
Cardiff will seek a first win of the season away at Huddersfield next Saturday. They are 5/2 to get the three points with the Terriers 6/5 and the draw 21/10.
Cardiff are 17/2 to win the game 1-0.
