Liverpool loaned winger Sheyi Ojo scored and intervened with an assist as Cardiff City defeated Luton Town 4-0 in the Championship on Saturday.
The Bluebirds were already 3-0 up when the wideman found the net in the 82nd minute following goals from Sean Morrison, Mark Harris and Kieffer Moore during a completely one-sided fight in which the hosts took a two-goal lead after nine. minutes.
Ojo had also helped assist Harris’s goal in the ninth minute, the forward’s first for the club, when he sent a good cross from the left wing for the Wales U21 international to dispatch with poise.
The Anglo-Nigerian wide player then added the fourth later, when he crashed into the far corner after Marlon Pack’s corner was cleared in his way.
Ojo impressed on the left flank – with Harry Wilson also excelling on the opposite wing – as Cardiff delivered a dazzling offensive display to ease the pressure on Neil Harris, who was in dire need of a positive result after a three-game winless streak.
The victory brings Cardiff to 14th place with 17 points, seven above the drop zone, after having played 14 games.
Luton, now without a win in four, remains up at 12th, though they will be desperate to stop their looming bad form, with league leaders Norwich City next.
