Cardiff manager Malky Mackay paid tribute to his side after they rallied from 1-0 down to defeat nine-man Watford 2-1.
Peter Whittingham's penalty and Aron Gunnarsson's 91st-minute header gave City their sixth successive win at the Cardiff City Stadium and the best home start to a season in their 113-year history.
Former Hornets boss Mackay said: "I'm very proud of the boys who have gone and achieved that, but I'm even more proud that we got three points and are sitting top of the league.
"At the start of the season, I asked the supporters to come and back the team. The players have put their heart and soul into the home games and there has been a buzz around the crowd.
"We have a resilient and fit team who have belief in their ability. You can see the crowd getting right behind the team until the death - it was like a ground swell.
"They could see the goal coming and were our 12th man."
