Cardiff secure quarter-final place

Published Add your comment

Early goals from Peter Whittingham and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink moved Cardiff into the FA Cup quarter-finals for the first time in 81 years with a 2-0 victory over Wolves.

Only two minutes had passed at Ninian Park when Whittingham broke the offside trap to race onto Hasselbaink´s pass and fire under goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

Whittingham returned the favour nine minutes later when he laid the ball back to the former Chelsea striker, who rifled a trademark shot into the top corner.
