Conway strike gives Cardiff win



Craig Conway earned Cardiff City a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday that gave the Bluebirds a 10th consecutive home victory and sent them back to the top of the Championship table.

Conway found the target 10 minutes from time with a left-footed drive into the bottom-right corner as Cardiff leapfrogged Crystal Palace and returned to the summit of the English second tier.

Wednesday manager Dave Jones was returning to his former club and saw Gary Madine almost put the visitors ahead in the second period, only for Cardiff goalkeeper David Marshall to save smartly with his legs.

The last 100 percent home record in English league football appeared to be in jeopardy, only for Conway to guide Cardiff onto the path to victory with his first goal of the season.

Earlier, Burnley substitute Sam Vokes headed in an 89th-minute equaliser only three minutes after coming on to earn his side a 1-1 draw at home to Lancashire rivals Blackburn Rovers.

Rovers had taken the lead in the 65th minute when top scorer Jordan Rhodes converted a right-wing centre from Mauro Formica.

Blackburn, Premier League champions in 1995, have won just once in seven games since former player Henning Berg took over as manager and sit ninth in the table, one point and five places above Burnley.
