Junior Hoilett’s stunner grabs comeback victory for Cardiff against Wolves
On the eve of his 70th birthday, Neil Warnock could not have scripted it any better. Love him or loathe him, it is impossible not to admire Warnock’s longevity and this was another victory for the Yorkshireman to cherish as Junior Hoilett produced a moment of individual brilliance to give his manager the perfect present and lift Cardiff out of the relegation zone.
Trailing to Matt Doherty’s first-half goal, Cardiff showed spirit and character in abundance to come from behind and win at home for the third time this season. They are a Warnock team in every sense in that respect and it is starting to look as though Cardiff’s relegation from the Premier League is not the foregone conclusion that many predicted it would be. “We’ve given ourselves a chance,” Warnock said. “But we’re not getting carried away.”
