Cardiff City secured back-to-back victories for the first time during this Championship season, with The Bluebirds running out as 2-1 winners at Preston North End yesterday. 

Sean Maguire opened the scoring in the second minute for the hosts, when he tapped in from close range from a corner that was flicked on. 

Mark McGuiness restored parity for Cardiff six minutes into the second half, heading in at the back post from Will Vaulks’ free-kick.

Summer signing James Collins then put the visitors into the lead in the 66th minute, when he rose highest to nod in from Ryan Giles’ corner. 

Collins’ eventual winner was his first goal of the season since swapping Luton Town for South Wales. 

The forward netted what was his fifth goal in three matches against Preston in recent seasons, sparking scenes of joy in the away end at Deepdale.
