Cardiff City 2-1 Bristol City


The Robins suffered a dent to their promotion hopes as they narrowly lost out to the Bluebirds at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Peter Whittingham scored a first half penalty to give Neil Warnock’s side the lead before Souleymane Bamba added a second with 25 minutes to play.

Lee Tomlin pulled one back for the visitors but it wasn’t enough as the Robins failed to find an equaliser.

Forest moved clear of the relegation zone with a close fought win over the Blues at the City Ground.

Goals from Eric Lichaj and Apostolos Vellios looked to have sealed a comfortable win but Lukas Jutkiewicz scored for Gary Rowet’s men to create a nervy ending.

But Hildeberto Perreira scored a third goal for Forest late on to seal all three points.
