Cardiff City beat Preston North End 1-0 at Deepdale today and many Bluebirds fans have praised winger Sheyi Ojo after he scored the winner.
It had been nearly a month since Neil Harris’ side last win, a 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest, but after a strong finish to the transfer window they will likely have been confident heading into today’s game.
The Bluebirds came out on top after a cagy affair in the North West with Ojo’s goal inside the first 10 minutes of the second period proving decisive.
Cardiff broke forward at breakneck speed through Kieffer Moore, who teed the ball up for the Liverpool loanee to smash past Declan Rudd into the back of the net.
The 23-year-old made the switch to the Welsh capital on a season-long loan in the summer but had not contributed to a goal since joining the Championship outfit.
Do Cardiff City and Swansea City have these 10 things in common?
It was Ojo’s moment of quality that proved the difference at Deepdale this afternoon and the winger certainly seems to have won Bluebirds fans over, with many of them taking to Twitter to voice their thoughts.

That was a superb counter attack from Cardiff City at Deepdale, Sheyi Ojo with his first ever goal for the Bluebirds. That is how you play on the counter attack, so much quality. Ojo has been a real bright spark for Cardiff with his driving runs forward #PNECAR
