Sean Morrison scores for both sides as Cardiff City beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 in the Championship.

Cardiff City edged out Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 in the Championship in a game that saw Sean Morrison score for both sides.

Morrison headed his side into the lead shortly before half time, only to then net an own goal to level things up for the visiting Wednesday.

However, Anthony Pilkington struck the winner to give the Welsh side all three points.

Earlier in the game Aron Gunnarsson went close with a header from Pilkington's cross after 25 minutes, but the attempt was saved by Wednesday keeper Keiren Westwood.

Cardiff striker Kenwyne Jones spurned a great opportunity to give his side the lead when he fired wide from around six yards out, moments after Gunnarson's attempt.

Craig Noone then flashed a shot wide of the goal on the half-hour mark after cutting inside with a mazy dribble before Morrison popped up towards the end of the half with a header from Peter Whittingham's excellent corner.

However, six minutes after the restart, Morrison put through his own net to even things up when he diverted Chris Maguire's cross past his goalkeeper.

The home side grabbed the lead once more just after the hour mark when Pilkington rifled home with his right foot.

Ravel Morrison was introduced for his Cardiff debut shortly after, and the on-loan West Ham United midfielder teed up Pilkington, who in turn fed Gunnarson for an acrobatic effort with less than 10 minutes remaining.
