Bluebirds flying high; Important wins for Wolves and Barnsley

Cardiff stretched their lead at the top of the table to seven points as they claimed a 3-0 victory over struggling Blackburn, with a last-gasp Peter Whittingham penalty sealing the triumph.

With second-placed Hull not in action until Tuesday, when they take on fellow promotion hopefuls Watford, the win allowed the Bluebirds to cement their status in pole position.

Sylvan Ebanks-Blake scored a double as Wolves emerged 3-2 winners in the derby clash at Birmingham to climb out of the drop zone, despite a scare as Wade Elliott netted a late penalty for the Blues.

A fourth-minute Michael Keane own-goal and a Chris O'Grady strike handed relegation-threatened Barnsley a much-needed 2-0 victory over free-falling Leicester at Oakwell.

Relegation candidates Sheffield Wednesday suffered a blow at rock-bottom Bristol City as the home side snatched a stoppage-time 1-1 draw through Sam Baldock.

Nottingham Forest narrowly retained their unbeaten streak under Billy Davies as a stoppage-time penalty from Lewis McGugan sealed a 1-1 draw at Burnley after Junior Stanislas had put the hosts in front.

Ten-man Blackpool edged a 1-0 victory over promotion hopefuls Crystal Palace at Bloomfield Road to propel the Seasiders away from the drop zone, with Matt Phillips netting an 85th-minute winner after Barry Ferguson had been sent off for a second yellow just before half-time.

The tussle between Millwall and Ipswich at The Den ended in a goalless draw as the two sides shared the spoils.

In Monday's late game, Jake Buxton grabbed a late winner as Derby came from behind to beat Leeds 2-1 at Elland Road and leave manager Neil Warnock to decide that it was time to part company with the Yorkshire club.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
