Kewyne Jones scores on Cardiff debut

 A debut goal for Trinidad and Tobago striker Kenwyne Jones saw Cardiff City take a 2-1 victory over Norwich City in the English Premier League yesterday.

The win lifted Cardiff off the bottom of the league table.

Two quick-fire goals at the start of the second half saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side overturn Norwich’s first-half advantage, claimed by a sixth minute strike from winger Robert Snodgrass.

It also ensured Solskjaer secured a first Premier League win since taking charge of the Welsh club which, while not moving them out of the drop zone, got them off the bottom of the table at Fulham’s expense.

Jones, who joined Cardiff City from Stoke City where he scored 13 goals from 88 appearances, was one of two new signings used by Solskjaer for Saturday’s match.

Cardiff remain in the relegation zone with 21 points, three more than Fulham at the bottom. Norwich are on 24 points and Manchester City lead with 53 points.
