Trains will continue to call at Ninian Park station before Cardiff City home games following talks between the club and Arriva Trains Wales.

However, no trains will call at the station for one hour after the end of each game.

Fans are urged to use Grangetown station instead which is around a 10-minute walk from the stadium.

Arriva had originally planned to suspend services for three hours either side of kick-off times.

Simon Turton, special events manager for Arriva Trains Wales, said: "We are pleased to have been able to review train service provision for fans following further talks with the club.

"Post match, Grangetown station is better suited with more frequent services and wider platforms, which will provide fans with a more pleasant, faster and safer journey home."

Trains will continue call at all other City Line stations (Waun-gron Park, Fairwater, Danescourt and Radyr) as normal.

Cardiff City chief executive Gethin Jenkins said: "We are pleased that a suitable balance has been reached regarding this service."

The Bluebirds are at home to Brighton on Wednesday evening.
