Hudson's diving header, his third of the season, turned out to be the matchwinner at the Cardiff City Stadium and defensive partner Turner is hopeful of following suit having netted three times last season including a memorable goal at Wembley against Liverpool.

"Hopefully a goal from me will come soon too," he said. "I've had a couple of chances now and have hit the crossbar at Charlton and have put my head on a few things.

"But I'll concentrate on my defending and see if I can also chip in with a few goals too. Huds is doing it and if I can join in with that I'll be happy."

The 24-year-old has been a regular in the side having regained his place after a foot injury and the ex-Coventry defender believes there is plenty more to come as he continues to feature regularly.

"I don't think I've hit my top form yet this season," he said. "I had a little injury that set me back around six weeks and, after having a pre-season with the lads, I played the first two games and then missed eight due to a tear in my foot. But it was one of those things that you have to deal with."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
