NEIL WARNOCK con­tin­ued his un­beaten start to life as Cardiff boss thanks to Peter Whit­ting­ham’s first-half strike. The Blue­birds, who won the first game un­der their new man­ager against Bris­tol City last Fri­day, were a goal to the good after just nine min­utes thanks to Whit­ting­ham’s free­kick. Sam Hutchin­son dragged down Aron Gun­nars­son on the edge of the box and Whit­ting­ham – who net­ted a penalty in the win over the Robins – did the rest. Wed­nes­day were forced to bring on 21-year-old sub keeper Cameron Daw­son after los­ing Keiren West­wood to in­jury 13 min­utes be­fore the break. The vis­i­tors’ best chance of the half was a fab­u­lous strike from Adam Reach that Ben Amos did well to keep out. Ju­nior Hoi­lett al­most made it two eight min­utes into the sec­ond half but his shot was well saved by Daw­son. How­ever, the young­ster was beaten in the 55th minute when Danny Pudil ar­rived at the far post to level the game. Sean Mor­ri­son’s howler five min­utes later al­most gifted Wed­nes­day a sec­ond goal but Reach fired woe­fully wide.
