With poorer form again of late, Wolverhampton Wanderers went into today’s Premier League clash at the Molineux against a Cardiff City side we know well.
Wolves were more back at the races in the opening 45 minutes and inside of the first 20 we had control of the game, with two goals coming from Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez. Cardiff improved in the second period, or we stepped off – whichever way you look at it – and 2-0 was how it ended as we took another victory and all three points.
