Goals either side of half time see Cardiff City record a 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsbrough.

Cardiff City have got their promotion challenge back on track with a 2-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsbrough in the Championship.

It was the hosts who started the stronger of the two teams, with David Marshall being forced into action early on.

Dave Jones's men were running the show in midfield, but could not capitalise on the few half-chances that they managed to create.

The Bluebirds went ahead against the run of play just before the half-time whistle, as Don Cowie headed home Craig Bellamy's corner.

Matthew Connolly doubled the lead in the 65th minute from another set piece, as this time Peter Whittingham swung in a dangerous free kick.

There were seven minutes added on at the end due to an injury to Michail Antonio, but Malky Mackay's men held firm to wrap up the victory.
