Nigerian born winger Ojo provides assist as Cardiff City stun Bristol City

Nigerian eligible forward Sheyi Ojo was impressive for Cardiff City on Saturday, reports.

Ojo accounted for an assist as Cardiff City defeated Bristol City 2-0 at the Ashton Gate.

Cardiff City’s pressure on their Severnside rivals was duly rewarded in the 18th minute of the game.

Harry Wilson’s fine free-kick delivery from the right-hand side found the on-rushing Curtis Nelson, who placed his header past Daniel Bentley.

Having taken the lead, Mick McCarthy’s men didn’t rest on their laurels and continued to pile on the pressure.

And in the 25th minute, they doubled their advantage as Sheyi Ojo’s perfectly weighted cross was nodded home by Kieffer Moore, notching his eleventh City goal of the season.

Ahead of half-time, Ojo almost went from provider to scorer as his excellent header was tipped just over.

The Bluebirds were denied a penalty at the beginning of the second half as Aden Flint looked to have been pulled back. However, they were let off on the counter as the Robins broke at pace but lost control of the ball in the City box.

City almost made it three from a counter of their own, but Moore’s squared pass was just ahead of Ojo on the six-yard box.
