Cardiff City came from behind to beat Nottingham Forest 2-1 at the City Ground yesterday.
The result moves Mick McCarthy’s side closer to the play-off places and it will be an afternoon that youngster Rubin Colwill remembers forever after he scored twice to win the game.
Whilst the 19-year-old has rightly grabbed all the headlines, fellow substitute Kieffer Moore also made a big impact.
The Bluebirds managed to keep the target man in the recent window despite interest from Wolves and he showed why he was chased by the Premier League side with his performance yesterday.
Moore was a constant threat after coming on, with Forest struggling to deal with his physicality, and he hit the post with an excellent header. He also played a crucial part in the winner, as his smart flick set Colwill through to get his second.
Can you name the Cardiff City player who has been carded the most in each of the last 16 seasons?
Here we look at some of the reaction to Moore’s display from Cardiff fans, and some Forest supporters who recognised the role the striker played in the game…
The introduction of Kieffer Moore changed the game.
Was embarrassing to watch.

Kieffer Moore ballon d'or. Could (should) always just start him…
Rubin Colwill's first big impact. Hope there's more to come. 🙌🏼
Another hard watch but that doesn't matter.

Poor first half, excellent second – and the introduction of Kieffer Moore and, of course, @RubinColwill, made all the difference.
Great to see an academy player play so well – and for the likes of Joel Bagan and Mark Harris to be involved too.

Thats a good goal from the young lad tbf, but Kieffer Moore is the difference, Wales massively missed him during the international break massively

What a difference since the subs. Played some actual football. We can never, ever lose Kieffer Moore.
