Cardiff City were one of the loudest clubs during a league meeting last Thursday, highlighting their troubling financial situation, detailing large seven-figure monthly losses They aren’t the only struggling team for now, of course, and in need of tax help

The EFL tried to regroup recently The rivals nodded in agreement hoping for a package formulated by the government and the Premier League, although it turned into resigned fun and a bit of indignation 24 hours later

Harry Wilson traveled to South Wales on a season-long loan from Liverpool and eyebrows were raised Cardiff beat a few to his signing with the Bluebirds paying off a big chunk, if not all of Wilson’s £ 60,000 per week salary On top of that, loan charges could exceed the original £ 1million if certain clauses are triggered

Liverpool player Sheyi Ojo (left) pocketed the winner from Cardiff in the 52nd minute of the game

Thanks to Ojo, the result will see Neil Harris’ men climb to 12th in the league

So those competing with Cardiff think they have reason to smile ironically Even during this pandemic some things never change and the arms race to the Premier League still exists Bets, calculated or not, continue

« I couldn’t believe we had a chance to bring him in, » said Cardiff manager Neil Harris « He’s a Premier League player We never thought he would be available That’s became a real last minute, then a scramble between us and about 10 other clubs

« I’ll never take a player who doesn’t really want to play for the club Ultimately he wanted to come to Cardiff City, play in the capital of Wales, capture the imagination of the Welsh public and the ryan giggs eye He thinks it’s his best avenue to enter the Premier League « 

He said Wilson had ‘the desire to play for the club’ and was looking to get Ryan Giggs’ attention

It started just before the half hour mark at Deepdale, with Harris calling Wilson off the bench after Greg Cunningham injured His debut was positive, giving Cardiff more control in the scrappy affair they ultimately won

Sheyi Ojo – another on loan from Liverpool – delivered the decisive blow seven minutes after half-time Kieffer Moore, a £ 2million signing from Wigan Athletic, got rid of Preston’s challenges at the break , posing right for Ojo and the winger bumped into Declan Rudd’s upper left corner

Preston created opportunities, Sean Maguire perhaps with the most presentable when he forced Alex Smithies to make a smart save on the turn before substitute Jayden Stockley’s late header went straight to the Cardiff keeper  » We’ve been in some good situations, but that’s finding the trick to create that chance, ”said Preston’s Alex Neil « I don’t think Cardiff is much better than us There was nothing in it »

Promotional campaign seems unlikely for North End, most of the recent activity of which is the purchase of the old Euxton training ground in Wigan They have just moved from the old site from Springfields, with an overall spend of around £ 2million and seen as an investment with great prospects for the club’s future

The Cardiff board made no secret of their displeasure over a first four game win

Mehmet Dalman said the board would be disappointed if it ‘doesn’t make it into the top six by January’

Cardiff already has the infrastructure in place and it was certainly an afternoon Harris needed Its chairman, Mehmet Dalman, made no secret of the council’s displeasure over a win in the first four matches of the season before this

« We would be very disappointed with this squad if we don’t make the top six in January, » he said « Let’s not be diplomats on our departure. Just hope the squad freezes better than she has only done so in the past « 

No pressure, so « We’ve signed six signings and played only five games so it will take time for the players to fit in with us, » Harris added. « On paper, business looks good, but we need to make sure it’s good business on the ground »
