Wolves boosted their Sky Bet Championship play-off hopes as Bakary Sako's strike gave them a 1-0 win over 10-man Cardiff and spoiled Vincent Tan's return to the Welsh capital.

Kenny Jackett's men have now won four of their last five and are coming on strong at just the right time of the season as they target back-to-back promotions.

Cardiff, who had Peter Whittingham sent off midway through the second half, have now taken all three points in just one of their last eight home games and may have left their Malaysian owner wondering why he made the trip.

Hal Robson-Kanu booked Reading's place in the fifth round of the FA Cup with a late winner in a 2-1 victory at Cardiff.

Wales international Robson-Kanu, on as an 82nd minute substitute, swept home Jordan Obita's cross six minutes later after Oliver Norwood had cancelled out Kenwyne Jones' first-half header for the Bluebirds.

Tan open to having fan on Cardiff board

Cardiff chairman Mehmet Dalman says club owner Vincent Tan is "open to the idea" of having a fans' representative on the board following the return to the traditional blue kit.

On Friday, Malaysian businessman Tan removed the red home strip he introduced in 2012 in the wake of a record low crowd at the Cardiff City Stadium for the FA Cup third-round tie with Colchester and planned supporters' protests in the new year over the club's controversial rebranding exercise.

"Vincent is open to the idea," Dalman said about the possibility of supporters being represented on the Cardiff board.

"We have already made some bridges and I think this decision (returning kit colour to blue) will help us us get there much faster.

"I have started meeting with the fans' group or representatives before every board meeting for them to tell us our views.

"I've got closer to the fans at games and I'd like Vincent to do that because I think he'd actually find it's a wonderful world."

Juan Cala asks Cardiff to show him 'respect'

Cardiff City defender Juan Cala has accused the club of showing him a lack of respect after being sent to train with the academy squad.

Cala has only featured three times for the Championship club this season, with two of those appearances coming in the Capital One Cup.

New manager Russell Slade has instead opted to use Sean Morrison, Ben Turner and Bruno Manga as his preferred central defenders.

Ex-England internationals react to Mackay sacking

Former England players have reacted to the sacking of Cardiff manager Malky Mackay, saying that it was a "shame".

'Unfair' for Cardiff manager saga to continue, says Tan

Cardiff City's owner, Vincent Tan, has issued a statement on his decision to sack manager Malky Mackay, saying it was "no longer fair" for the "uncomfortable state of affairs" around his posting to continue, according to Wales Online.

"There has been a good deal of publicity generated by and about Mr Malky Mackay over the last few months," Tan said. "Indeed far too much dirty linen has been exposed to the public gaze.

"But, I stress, not by me. Indeed, I have deliberately not responded to this, hoping that the club can be judged on its football rather than personalised arguments about who said what to whom.

"I have, however, regretfully concluded that it is no longer fair to the club, its players, its fans, or the public more generally, for this uncomfortable state of affairs to continue. Cardiff City Football Club means far too much to us all for it to be distracted by this."

Eriksson among early favourites for Cardiff City job

Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson is among the early favourites to replace Malky Mackay as Cardiff City manager.

The popular Scot was sacked by owner Vincent Tan today after an acrimonious final few weeks in charge.
