The place-kicking of centre Peter Horne inspired Glasgow to an 18-3 success at Cardiff - their fourth successive RaboDirect Pro12 victory.

His six penalties saw the Warriors move up to third place in the table and condemned the Blues to a third home defeat of the season.

The Blues desperately needed a good start to shrug off the memory of last weekend's record home defeat against Ulster, but Glasgow soon established control up front and were rewarded with points on the board.

Right-wing Tommy Seymour was dragged down by opposite number Tom James after breaking the first line of defence, but the visitors maintained their pressure and were awarded a penalty which Horne slotted over from wide out.

Glasgow were given another penalty following a long kick downfield by flanker John Barclay and from almost the same angle, Horne doubled the lead.

He repeated the trick three minutes later, with the Blues struggling to get into the opposition half.

The home side were being pinged repeatedly at the scrum and Italian referee Giuseppe Vivarini soon provided an opportunity for Horne to kick his fourth penalty.

Blues full-back Leigh Halfpenny, returning after a spell on the sidelines with an ankle injury, was able to put his team on the scoresheet with a penalty for offside.

Vivarini ruled that the Blues had transgressed at the breakdown and the impeccable Horne kicked a 45-yard penalty.

The Warriors then destroyed the home pack to give Horne another three points for his collection.

Glasgow were reduced to 14 men when hooker Dougie Hall was yellow-carded for a professional foul, not that it mattered. Glasgow kept the Blues penned in their own half until the final whistle heralded a solid victory.
