Coventry City returned from Wales empty-handed on Tuesday night after a second defeat in four days on the road.
An early Anthony Gerrard goal set Cardiff on their way and Peter Whittingham sealed the points from the penalty spot.
Chris Hussey made his Sky Blues debut as a second-half substitute and could start for the first time at the weekend when West Brom come to the Ricoh Arena for what has become a vital game for Chris Coleman's men.
