- On the eve of his 70th birthday celebration, Neil Warnock could not have scripted it any better as Cardiff City exhibited their forces of recuperation to dig out from a deficit to win at home for the third time this season, politeness of a magnificent goal from Junior Hoilett.
- Adore him or severely dislike him, it is inconceivable not to appreciate Warnock’s life span and this was a triumph for the Yorkshireman to value.

- That gave Warnock’s players the stage to go on and win and Hoilett savored the opportunity to become the dominant focal point, twisting in a superb right-footed shot that arced into the best corner. Strikingly it was the Canadian’s first Premier League goal for a long time.
- Triumph lifts Cardiff to fifteenth and heaps the wretchedness on Wolves, who have now grabbed just a single point from a conceivable 18 and gravely lost their way after such a promising begin to the season. With Chelsea to come on Wednesday, life is not going to get any simpler for Nuno Espírito Santo and his players.
All of the talk was about Wolves and Fulham at the start of the season with the money they’ve spent. Who has beaten both fellow promoted teams at home in the Premier League this season? That’s right. CARDIFF CITY. #CityAsOne #Bluebirds

- With April’s turbulent gathering still new in the psyche, everyone’s eyes were on Warnock and Nuno from the start. This time, however, there were warm handshakes and grins all round as the two directors grasped each other preceding commencement like missing companions, sharing a joke and giving the feeling that there was no waiting hostility.
- Nuno, notwithstanding, would have been far more joyful with what he saw on the contribute the opening 45 minutes.
An early birthday present for Neil Warnock who turns 7️⃣0️⃣ tomorrow as his @CardiffCityFC side beat Wolves 2-1 🎁🎂🍾

- Wolves were ahead politeness of Doherty’s goal and for a significant part of the primary half baffled Cardiff, whose supporters were beginning to get somewhat fretful until some weight only before the interim nearly yielded an equalizer.
- Harry Arter was frantically unfortunate not to carry equality with an awesome left-footed shot from 16 yards that crashed against the far upstanding.
Cardiff climb out of the relegation zone with a deserved 2-1 win over Wolves.

- After six minutes the ball dropped enticingly for Victor Camarasa after Willie Boly, under strain from Callum Paterson, was not able get any separation on his header. The Spaniard’s eyes lit up however he grabbed at the possibility and completely missed his kick.
- Doherty was not at all like as pardoning in the Cardiff region and it will torment Warnock that his players were gravely gotten out by a set piece. Raúl Jiménez met João Moutinho’s corner with a fine turning header that Neil Etheridge radiantly repulsed low on his right side with one hand yet Cardiff were ease back to respond to the free ball, specifically Aron Gunnarsson, who was gotten on his rear areas as Doherty changed over vehemently with his left foot from around six yards.
But … but … this wasn’t meant to be part of the script. Sky kept telling me Wolves are the ‘best ever’ promoted team in the Premier league era. Just the 61 points needed lads. You Reds #NFFC pic.twitter.com/J3gm8CrKcW

- Wolves could have multiplied their lead without further ado subsequently pursued a breakaway from a Cardiff corner however Adama Traoré, making an uncommon Wolves begin, squandered a brilliant chance.
- It was three against one for a minute to support Wolves yet Traoré appeared to have no clue that Bruno Ecuele Manga was in front of him and his overwhelming touch saw the counterattack separate, leaving Nuno exasperated.
I wanted a win tonight to get us out of this dip. But I leave Cardiff with fans insisting ‘we’re relegated‘ & ‘Nuno has lost it’ – STOP IT! Time for fans to wake up & get out of Dreamland because this is the Premier League – it’s NOT an easy ride🙄🤷🏻♂️🐺 #CARWOL #WWFC #wolves pic.twitter.com/rvbvuRAYbj

- Traoré’s pace remained a significant outlet for Wolves and spread tension among the Cardiff protection at whatever point he got the ball, yet it was a condition of frenzy at the opposite end that prompted the following goal. Arter’s well-struck volley was diverted wide by Conor Coady and Cardiff adjusted from the corner that trailed Rui Patrício was gotten in a dead zone.
- Patrício appeared to misconceive an out-dated up and under from Arter, which Sean Morrison flicked on as the Wolves goalkeeper retreated. Gunnarsson, in the correct place at the opportune time, took the ball on his chest and gymnastically snared home from four yards out with Patrício stranded.
Joyous stuff. Fair play to the Seal on Franksy the other day, who when Franksy was saying “You’ve got to admit Wolves are doing really well”, said “They’re halfway down the Premier League, we’ve been there!”.

- Cardiff were not completed there, in any case, and it was a snapshot of brightness from Hoilett that permitted Warnock to praise his achievement in style.
