Irish full-back Matt Doherty scored with a super long-range effort last night

The Wolves defender hit a wonderful opener but Anthony Pilkington produced the winner for Cardiff four minutes from the end.

CARDIFF CLAIMED A 2-1 win over Wolves in the Championship last night but it was the visitors who got off to a blistering start — scoring inside the first two minutes.

Irish full-back Matt Doherty — yet to be capped at senior international level despite being named in a couple of Martin O’Neill’s squads — received a short free-kick wide on the left and cut inside before driving the ball past Ben Amos.

The Cardiff goalkeeper should probably have done better but the strike was hit with serious power.

Matt Connolly pulled one back for the home side midway through the second half and Ireland international Anthony Pilkington then grabbed a winner for the Bluebirds with four minutes on the clock.
