Raiders came from behind in Wales, after three quick Cardiff goals cancelled out Matt Turner’s opener.
Danny Marshall and Frankie Harvey netted either side of the second interval, before a powerplay goal from Billy Phillips ensured a happy trip back up the M4.
Bracknell were blown away by a five-period opening period display the following night and Juraj Huska, Shaun Yardley and captain Julian Smith all ended up with five points to their name in an emphatic 14-1 triumph.
National League Division 2
Saturday: Cardiff v Romford Fury (7pm)
Fury will look to extend their unbeaten run to five matches in Wales this weekend.
They return from a two-week break, having mounted a pair of superb comebacks against Bristol and Chelmsford.
Romford found themselves three goals down in the final period of both matches, but battled back on both occasions to grab a share of the spoils.
Cardiff are unbeaten in their last three outings, though, after following a 2-2 draw with Swindon last month with a pair of 5-4 wins over Invicta and Oxford last weekend.
