    Sheyi Ojo’s first Cardiff goal earns victory at Preston

    Liverpool loanee Sheyi Ojo bagged Cardiff’s winner as they clinched a battling 1-0 win at Preston.

    The 23-year-old winger scored his first English League goal for 34 months as the Bluebirds edged a scrappy showdown and made it five unbeaten away from home in the league.

    Preston had a few good chances of their own but lacked a killer bite in front of goal as they slipped to a third league defeat of the campaign.

    Lilywhites boss Alex Neil had the pleasure of being able to include midfielder Alan Browne in his starting line-up a following a Covid scare.

    The Republic of Ireland international was a real doubt for the clash with the Bluebirds following imposed self-isolation.

    And Browne was given the captain’s armband as Neil had the luxury of naming the same team that scored four goals in 18 minutes to go from 2-0 down to beat Brentford last time out.

    The hosts were the brighter starters and midfielder Brad Potts saw his thunderous free-kick charged down by Cardiff’s defensive wall.

    Moments later, striker Sean Maguire cut inside and forced a smart save from Cardiff keeper Alex Smithies at his near post.

    Cardiff countered well and Junior Hoilett let rip with a powerful volley, but defender Ryan Ledson threw himself at the ball to avert the danger.

    Wales international striker Kieffer Moore was making a nuisance of himself up top and he went close, powering a header over from Jordi Osei-Tutu’s pinpoint cross.

    Potts had another good chance on the stroke of half-time but blasted his right-foot shot straight at the thankful Smithies.

    The breakthrough came seven minutes after the break when Preston were caught sleeping after a superb counter-attack from the visitors.

    Ojo collected the ball from Moore in a flowing move, went on a mazy run and smashed past helpless Preston keeper Declan Rudd.

    Ojo, now at his sixth loan club, was strong to hold off two defenders and clinical as he picked out the top-right corner with his delicious strike.

    Preston forward Scott Sinclair, who scored twice in a fine comeback win over the Bees before the international break, tried his luck from distance with 15 minutes remaining but rifled straight at Smithies.

    Substitute Jayden Stockley went close to levelling but, agonisingly for the hosts, his header crept wide of the left upright.

    Stockley had another good opportunity with two minutes remaining, but the striker headed straight at Smithies. It summed up Preston’s frustrating Sunday afternoon.

    Preston wait on Alan Browne update ahead of meeting with Cardiff

    Preston are awaiting news on midfielder Alan Browne ahead of their Sky Bet Championship clash with Cardiff on Saturday.

    Browne has been self-isolating after international duty, where one of his Republic of Ireland team-mates contracted Covid-19, and it is not yet certain when he will be able to resume training.

    Fellow midfielder Daniel Johnson is fit to return from injury, however, with forward Tom Barkhuizen also available after serving the one-match ban he was handed for receiving a red card against Stoke.

    Louis Moult (knee) and Darnell Fisher (hamstring) are both sidelined, but Emil Riis and Sean Maguire have returned unscathed from international duty and are available.

    Cardiff are without key midfielder Lee Tomlin, who is suspended for one match after picking up two yellow cards during the club’s 0-0 draw with Blackburn on October 3.

    Joe Bennett is another probable absentee, having sustained an injury during the same Blackburn fixture.

    Greg Cunningham is likely to take up the left-back role again and deputise in his absence.

    Forward Keiffer Moore could be fit to return after suffering a toe injury whilst representing Wales over the international break.
