It was an emotional day for Cardiff City today, who enjoyed the high of a 2-0 victory over Bournemouth in their Premier League clash while enduring the low that is the disappearance of striker Emiliano Sala.
Sala has been missing since the plane he was travelling in vanished on 21 January. Last week, manager Neil Warnock admitted he had thought about quitting "24 hours a day, seven days a week" since.
It was Cardiff's first home game since that day and the city united to pay tribute. It was a sentiment shared by the players, with Bobby Reid holding up a jersey after scoring his goal.
