CARDIFF (0) 1 Bamba 90 SH­EFFIELD WED­NES­DAY (1) 1 Hooper 39 Att: 19,137

Neil Warnock praised his Cardiff play­ers for their “never-say-die at­ti­tude” af­ter Sol Bamba’s stop­page-time equaliser saved them against Sh­effield Wed­nes­day. Gary Hooper’s 39th-minute header looked like hand­ing Wed­nes­day a rare vic­tory in the Welsh cap­i­tal, but Bamba se­cured a 1-1 draw in the fourth minute of added time. Wed­nes­day’s Car­los Car­val­hal felt his side de­served more out of the game. “We are dis­ap­pointed be­cause we lost two points, we scored one goal and I thought we could achieve a sec­ond one.”

FOR­EST (0) 1 Carayol 75 WOLVES (0) 2 Jota 47, 81 Att: 25,756

Nuno Espírito Santo warned the rest of the Cham­pi­onship that Jota and Wolves are only go­ing to get stronger af­ter a 2-1 win at Not­ting­ham For­est. Jota, on loan from Atlético Madrid, struck twice in the sec­ond half to lead Wolves to vic­tory. “Jota, like all the other play­ers, is get­ting bet­ter and grow­ing with ev­ery game. He can get bet­ter; he can im­prove still.” Mark War­bur­ton was dis­ap­pointed that For­est mis­takes were a key fac­tor in both Wolves goals. “We knew that if we gave the ball away, they would pun­ish us. And they did.”
