Wolves midfielder Ryan Giles continues to shine during his season-long loan spell at Cardiff City.
With the Bluebirds 3-0 down at Stoke City after 46 minutes at the weekend and looking like they are heading for a ninth straight Championship loss, Giles played an influential part in earning his side an unlikely draw.
Playing in a left-wing back role, the England Under-20 international passed to Rubin Colwill, whose long-range effort couldn’t be kept out by Stoke keeper Josef Bursik.
Four minutes later Mark Harris made it 3-2 and then only 60 seconds later, Giles made a great run towards the by-line and played an inch-perfect cross into the path of former Wolves target Kieffer Moore who tapped home the equaliser.

His two assists at the Bet365 Stadium took his Championship tally for the season to seven assists from 12 appearances.
Only Huddersfield’s Sorba Thomas has more assists than Wolves’ 21-year-old.
The Athletic reported last month that Cardiff were handpicked as Giles’ preferred destination.
That was due to Mick McCarthy setting them up with width, supplying a target man in Moore and Giles’ superb crossing ability fitting in with that perfectly.
But the former Wolves boss was recently relieved of his duties after eight straight Championship losses.
However, Cardiff’s stand-in-boss Steve Morison started Giles in his first game in charge, so it doesn’t look like Giles’ game time is going to suffer due to McCarthy leaving the Welsh side.
With Queens Park Rangers coming to the Cardiff City Stadium tomorrow night, Giles will be hoping to inspire his side to their first win in 10.
Although he is yet to open his goalscoring account for Cardiff, Giles continues to thrive and sits out at the top for creating chances in the Championship.
