Cardiff man in 'Goal of the Season'
Cardiff City have been nominated in the best goal of the season (so far!) in the Football League Awards.
The goal nominated was Cardiff's first goal of the season when an impressive, flowing team move saw Riccy Scimeca pull the ball back from the by-line where JOE LEDLEY was oncoming and hit a low drive screaming past Colgan.
Brian Howard's consolation goal for Barnsley in the same game also made the 5 goal shortlist, his stunning individual effort not enough for Barnsley as they went down 2-1 to Cardiff City.
