Cardiff stay on course for promotion



Cardiff remain firmly on course for promotion to the Premier League after Fraizer Campbell's double fired the Championship leaders to a 2-1 win at Wolves on Sunday.

Malky Mackay's team moved eight points clear of second-placed Watford thanks to Campbell, who has now scored five goals in five games since his January transfer from Sunderland.

England international Campbell, who started his career as a Manchester United trainee, netted either side of halftime at Molineux to pile on the misery for struggling Wolves, who got one back through Bakary Sako but couldn't find an equaliser.

Wolves have taken just four points from eight matches since manager Dean Saunders arrived from Doncaster and his team, now third bottom of the second tier table, are facing the bleak prospect of a second consecutive relegation.

Cardiff took the lead after 20 minutes and the simplicity of the breakthrough goal revealed so much about Wolves' frailties.

Aron Gunnarsson's long throw was flicked into the path of Campbell and his header from six yards gave Carl Ikeme no chance.

Campbell increased Cardiff's lead when he headed in Craig Bellamy's cross after 67 minutes and, although Sako reduced the deficit three minutes later with a deflected free-kick, there was no way back for the hosts.
