Goal : Victor Camarasa 2 – 0
Cardiff double their lead! After a loose touch from Fredericks, Hoilett gets down the left and puts in a superb cross. Murphy unselfishly cushions the header back across goal for Victor Camarasa, who forces it home bravely. He pretty much tackled Fabianski to put it in.

Man Of The Match : Aron Gunnarsson
- Cardiff secured their first-ever win against West Ham in the Premier League by a 2-0 scoreline, after losing each of the previous three meetings by a two-goal margin.
- West Ham are without a win in six away Premier League games (D1 L5), after winning each of the three before that.
- West Ham have only won one of their last nine Premier League away games against sides starting the day in the relegation zone (D4 L4).
- Cardiff went in ahead at half-time for only the second time this season in the Premier League, still less often than any other side.
- Cardiff kept their eighth Premier League clean sheet of the season, more the likes of Manchester United (7) and Arsenal (5) have managed.
- Junior Hoilett has netted 16 goals for Cardiff in all competitions since Neil Warnock took over in October 2016, a haul bettered only by Kenneth Zohore (22).
- Junior Hoilett’s opener for Cardiff was timed at 3 mins 37 secs, the Bluebirds’ fastest league goal since February 2018, when Hoilett himself netted against Millwall (3:00).
Cardiff City will welcome West Ham United with hopes of getting that much needed win that could see them leave the Premier League relegation zone.
They are currently two points behind Southampton, who take on third place Tottenham Hotspur but despite these possibilities, Cardiff Manger Neil Warnock doesn’t see the game as a must win.
“I don’t think it’s a must-win game but it’s a very important game in the calendar. There are other games between now and the end of the season that will become must-win games, especially against the teams around us.
“We have to try and get something out of this game and be more positive than we have been. The lads have been a bit flat this week because it has probably been our worst week in the Premier League.
“You can see the disappointment of not being up to their own standards. We have to get back to that against West Ham. We have been a bit down because of the goals we have conceded. We want to make sure against West Ham we are on it from the start.”
