CORWEN'S own Harry Wilson hit the first hat-trick of his career on Saturday as Cardiff City beat Birmingham City 4-0 away from home in the EFL Championship.

The Welsh international, on loan from Liverpool, was the star of the show at St Andrews as the Bluebirds picked up a fine win.

24-year-old winger Wilson opened the scoring with a sensational effort off the outside of his left foot from long range.

He then curled in a free-kick around the Blues' wall to put Cardiff 2-0 up at half-time.

Substitute Mark Harris scored the third goal before Wilson completed his hat-trick with another brilliant free-kick.

Speaking to the Cardiff City FC website after the match, Wilson - who has now scored seven goals and provided 12 assists for the Bluebirds, said: "I saw it as a chance to put in a good performance and try and get my numbers up at the end of the season.

"On an individual note, I was delighted to do that, but as a team I think we defended well then, going forward, scored four goals – on another day we could have had even more.

"For me, I'm fully focussed on finishing the season with Cardiff and then going to the Euros where I'm determined to have a good tournament.

"I was desperate to get out and play this season to make sure I was in the best condition I could be in heading into this summer, as I knew how big it was going to be.

"I've had that game-time here at Cardiff City and I've reached double figures for assists with seven goals as well. I think those numbers have been OK while I'd obviously always want them to be better.

"Heading into the summer, I feel like I'm in great shape and it's up to me now to keep putting those performances in."
