Whittingham Tops Poll For Cup Hero

Whittingham Tops Poll For Cup Hero

Cardiff City's man of the match for the recent cup win over Middlesbrough was unsuprisingly shown to be Peter Whittingham.

Three frontrunners emerged after the impressive 2-0 win away at Middlesbrough which saw Cardiff through into the semi-finals. Glenn Loovens and Roger Johnson laid a solid platform, the latter scoring a headed goal while Peter Whittingham also scored and looked lively throughout.

Whittingham (29%)
Johnson (18%)
Loovens (16%)
McNaughton (11%)
Ramsey (9%)
Enckelman (6%)
McPhail (3%)
Hasselbaink (3%)
Rae (2%)
Capaldi (2%)
Parry (1%)

Whittingham scored a fantastic goal after twisting past 4 Boro defenders and curling a superb right foot effort into the top corner. The former Aston Villa winger then produced a dangerous cross for Roger Johnson to head into the far corner.

Whittingham has enjoyed a mixed season, producing some scintillating touches as well as some disappointing ones. He has struggled with consistency but has shown superb technical ability and scored some impressive goals.
