It was Slade's second game in charge and his side delivered another win, moving them up to 10th place in the Championship as the side looks to recover from a poor start to the season. They're now only three points off the play-off places.
Amongst the goalscorers was former Manchester United forward Federico Macheda, who happened to be in the right place at the right time to put them in front just after the half time break, as Peter Whittingham cancelled out Daryl Murphy's strike, with Adam Le Fondre rounding off the scoring.
It seems he has come in for criticism in some quarters but if he keeps on finding the back of the net, he is likely to win any doubters over.
Here is a selection of what a few fans had to say, as his partnership with Le Fondre up front seemed to impress:
Russell Slade is the man. Another good result tonight, loving the new Le Fondre + Macheda partnership upfront #Bluebirds— Jon Wilson (@JonWilson29) October 21, 2014
I'm just not going to comment on Macheda anymore he clearly knows what he's doing haha— Rice Scanner (@SkinnerCCFC) October 21, 2014
Really impressed by Cardiff tonight. They took a while to get into the game but worked very hard. Even Macheda put in a shift! No passengers— Scott Johnson (@roathboy) October 21, 2014
Brilliant win, played well, 2 in 2 for Russell, Macheda and Whitts
