Haris Vuckic again started for Cardiff City for the second game running tonight.
Haris Vuckic – wears the number 19 shirt at Cardiff
That’s the second game Haris has started since he went on an initial month-long loan deal to the Welsh side late last week.
The Slovenian U21 International scored Cardiff’s third goal after 40 minutes, in the home side’s 3-1 win over Peterborough at the Cardiff City Stadium.
Haris was substituted after 77 minutes but he seems to be getting good playing time at Cardiff, who after tonight’s games in the Championship find themselves 3rd top on 53 points, just 3 points behind second placed Southampton.
Southampton drew 0-0 at West Ham in the top of the table encounter, so that Cardiff gained two points on both sides.
West Ham are currently top on 57 points from their 30 games, and they did well to get a point as Matthew Taylor managed to get himself sent off after just 18 minutes for needlessly pushing Bill Sharp to the ground.
The Hammers were without former Newcastle captain Kevin Nolan, who received a straight red card against Milwall for another needless foul, and this was the first game he had missed as he serves a three match ban.
19 year-old Haris is one of the Magpies’ top young players and the central midfielder has so far played 12 times for the Newcastle first team, and no doubt the Newcastle management will be watching closely to see how the youngster fares at Cardiff.
Chris Hughton’s Birmingham City drew 0-0 at St. Andrews Stadium with Hull City and find themselves in 5th place in the Championship on 51 points, one point above Hull, and they are now unbeaten in their last 9 league games with 6 wins.
