Hudson wonder-goal helps Cardiff past Derby

Cardiff City have strengthened their grip on a Championship play-off place with a 2-0 win over Derby County. Malky Mackay's side remain sixth in the table after the victory, but are now four points clear of seventh-place Middlesbrough, with only two league games remaining.

Joe Mason put the Bluebirds in front at the Cardiff City Stadium, although his 11th goal of the season came only after the visitors had had a goal disallowed.
