Cardiff City moved within a point of Championship leaders Wolves and put promotion rivals Sheffield United under pressure by coming from behind to beat Norwich City 3-1.

On manager Neil Warnock's 69th birthday, Cardiff recovered after falling behind to Marco Stiepermann's long-range 43rd-minute opener to put six points between themselves and Warnock's former club - who face Millwall on Saturday - in third.

Joe Ralls levelled from the penalty spot after Ivo Pinto had been penalised for a shove in the box, with Junior Hoilett hitting home from a narrow angle to complete the turnaround.

Klose back in contention for trip to Cardiff

  Klose back in contention for trip to Cardiff Defender Timm Klose has recovered from his injury against Nottingham Forest and will travel to Cardiff for Norwich City’s Sky Bet Championship fixture on Friday evening, the club have confirmed. The defender was replaced at half-time in the Canaries 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest, an injury which kept the Swiss international out of the draw at home to Preston. Klose was also sidelined at the beginning of the season, missing the club’s first seven fixtures. However, Klose, 29, has recovered from the hip injury which kept him out, manager Daniel Farke confirmed in his pre-match press conference and will travel with the squad to Cardiff. “Timm is back. He trained in the last two sessions with us and he hasn’t been out for too long so he’ll be available for tomorrow.” The news will come as a welcome boost to Farke, who is looking to gain the sides first win in seven games when they face high-flying Cardiff, where a win will lift them into the top half of the table, ahead of Saturday’s fixtures.
