It might not have been a classic, the Sky highlights might be biased towards Barnsley's off target efforts but the most important detail is the final score.
BARNSLEY 0 - 1 CARDIFF CITY
With Sheff Utd losing 4 - 5 to Fulham a few miles away from Oakwell at Bramall Lane and Bristol City stumbling at home to Preston (1-2) it was a wonderful result for Cardiff as Callum Paterson's determination saw the ball rebound into the roof of the net in the 83rd minute.
Cardiff move into 2nd place and keep up a two+ point per game average (which is promotion form).
Next it's Forest away on Sunday lunchtime.
