‘ Peter Whittingham enters the charts ‘

By Mason Edwards

Peter Whittingham scored his 86th goal for Cardiff City yesterday against Huddersfield Town in the Bluebirds 3-2 win and by doing so Whhitingham became the clubs joint 9th all time top goalscorer.

Whittingham scored two goals in yesterday’s win, a tap in in the first half and a wonderful free kick that Cardiff City fans have become accustomed to from the mecurial midfielders left foot.

Being a midfielder makes Whittingham’s goal scoring achievements somewhat remarkable and he joins an elite list of Bluebird scoring heroes from yesteryear.

The midfielder shares ninth position with Derek Tapscott and just one more goal would see Whittingham join Bluebird legend John Toshack and their FA Cup Final goal scoring hero Hughie Ferguson on 87 goals.

Looking at the top ten list it is conceivable that Whittingham will make the top five, if he scores another five goals and Could possibly even make the top three by scoring eight.
