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."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
