Michael Kightly marked his first start in five months with a goal as Wolves gained ground in the Coca-Cola Championship play-off hunt at Molineux and ended Cardiff´s own lingering promotion hopes with a 3-0 victory.

Andy Keogh´s bullet header handed the home side an eighth-minute lead before Sylvan Ebanks-Blake served further notice of his growing reputation with his ninth goal in the last 11 games.

Wanderers picked up where they left off in the second half and Kightly´s night was complete when he tapped in from close range in the 57th minute after City goalkeeper Peter Enckelman had spilled Ebanks-Blake´s shot.
