The midfielder found the net for the third time this season with a drilled effort on 55 minutes from 20 yards that went at least some way to avenging North End’s thumping 6-0 triumph towards the end of last season – a result which ultimately cost the Welsh outfit their place in the play-offs.

A crowd of 18,735 at the Cardiff City Stadium were witness to a toothless first half, although the game came to life after the interval, with Jon Parkin seeing his header cleared off the line while the hosts saw several good chances go begging as they went in search of a second.

The result pushed Cardiff back into the top six but left Preston without a win since October 20.
