Down the line: Headlines from the football league


Harris holding a winning Card

BOSS Neil Harris believes Cardiff have the perfect recipe on the road after a winner from Sheyi Ojo (pictured) made it seven away points from nine.

Cardiff are still to concede away this term and Harris said: ‘We had a clean-sheet mentality about us and the ruthless nature to get the three points.’

Preston have lost all three home games 1-0 but Alex Neil said: ‘We’d be having a different conversation if we were getting ripped to pieces.’

Hero Woodrow keeps his Caul

BARNSLEY caretaker manager Adam Murray praised Cauley Woodrow for ending Bristol City’s 100 per cent record as his 102nd-minute penalty made it 2-2.

‘You had their players messing with the penalty spot and trying to get into Cauley’s head,’ he said. ‘The penalty going in under that pressure’s fantastic.’

Hull hand out Mall-ing at Dale

BOSS Grant McCann was delighted after Hull bounced back from a 4-1 defeat to stay in touch with Ipswich at the top. Mallik Wilks (two) and Josh Magennis sealed their 3-0 win at Rochdale and McCann said: ‘It’s a really good reaction from a bad half at Fleetwood.’


U’s show their ruthless streak

CAMBRIDGE got their second 5-0 away win this term as braces for Paul Mullin and Joe Ironside at Scunthorpe took them top of the table. ‘We want to have a ruthless edge,’ said boss Mark Bonner. ‘I don’t think the league table takes shape for a while yet.’
