Bluebirds thrown to the Wolves

Last updated : 01 April 2017 By Michael Morris

Confirmation that Ken Zohore was starting today's game came a welcome boost before kick off and the Dane obliged with his 9th goal in 9 games but it was a mere consolation as City conceded three at the other end.

The City defence failed to deal with a ball into the box and after some head tennis Danny Batth nodded Wolves in front.

Zohore's back header (pictured) after Gunnarsson's long throw levelled a few minutes later but after allowing the early Batth goal Cardiff were washed up again just before half time. City struggled in the air agan to give Batth time to head his second goal.


Craig Noone hit the post as City tried to compete but the game was settled when Helda Costa put the result beyond doubt in the last ten minutes.

City find themselves relatively comfortable in mid table. 11 points above the relegation places (Rotherham were relegated today), and 13 points away from the play offs. 

Starting line up:

Cardiff: McGregor, Richards, Bennett, Manga, Bamba, Morrison, Ralls, Gunnarsson, Hoilett, K Harris, Zohore.

Subs: Murphy, John, Connolly, Halford, Whittingham, Noone and Pilkington.
