Cardiff celebrate a handsome victory at Ninian Park
Cardiff City moved five points clear at the top of the Championship with a thumping win over 10-man Wolves.

Wolves had a mountain to climb when Gary Breen was sent off for an elbow on 23 minutes and Riccardo Scimeca's header put City in front by the break.

Jody Craddock put through his own net and Malvin Kamara struck Cardiff's third with a thumping drive.

Paul Parry, whose crosses created Cardiff's first two goals, rattled in a superb fourth from the edge of the box.

  • Cardiff boss Dave Jones:
    "Wolves made it hard for us by getting in our faces early on but we overcame that to play at a good tempo.

    "When you're playing a team a man short you have to put them on the rack and turn the screw and that is what we did.

    "We used our full-backs to good effect and pulled them all over the park and I think we should have scored even more goals."

  • Wolves boss Mick McCarthy:

  • "The sending off was a huge factor in the game as we were as good as Cardiff in the first 20 minutes.

    "We were still as good as them with 10 men coming up to half-time but that first goal was a blow.

    "At 1-0 we were still in with a shout and the Cardiff crowd weren't so happy but the second goal we conceded was just comical."
