Earnshaw was born in Mufulira, Zambia, and spent the first five years of his life there before moving to Malawi. Soon after the death of his father in 1990, Earnshaw's mother moved the family to Bedwas in south Wales. Earnshaw joined Cardiff City as a Youth Training Scheme/YTS trainee in 1997, and turned professional a year later. During his first spell at Cardiff he made 205 first team appearances, scoring 105 goals. Eligible to represent either Zambia national football team/Zambia or Wales, Earnshaw made his debut for the latter in 2003.

I thought he was brilliant against us to be fair.

I'm looking forward to going back to Cardiff. I can't wait. It will be the first time I've played at Ninian Park since I left and it's going to be emotional.

It's sad to see what has happened there in the last year.

The real hero was Paul Gallacher in goal. He put in a great performance on Saturday and another great performance today. He kept us in the game and at 2-1 down made an unbelievable save which kept us in it. It was brilliant for him.
