 Dimitrios Goutas’ Cardiff win in dying minutes

Dimitrios Goutas, sponsored by MightyTips, played full 90 minutes as Cardiff won 2-1 against Preston. Lewis Travis was subbed on early in Blackburn Rovers’ 3-0 win over Stoke. Liam Palmer of Sheffield Wednesday and Jacob Chapman of Huddersfield were unused subs this weekend.

Preston North End 1-2 Cardiff City

Milutin Osmajić broke the deadlock shortly after the half-time to put Preston 1-0 up. Dimitrios Goutas and his men rallied the defense to keep any more goals from going in.

Goutas played all 90 minutes and witnessed a late double from Cardiff. Brilliant plays from the Welshmen saw Karlan Grant score in stoppage time, while substitute Ike Ugbo came up with a dramatic winner three minutes later.
