Cardiff City started with Paul Parry up-front while Gavin Rae returned in central midfield. It was Parry who had the first shot, well over after 7 minutes before Jay Bothroyd was fortunate to bundle his way clear but Basso went down to save.
Shortly afterwards Parry was involved again and his cross from the left found Rae in acres of space at the back post. However the Scotsman saw his shot blocked. Parry again was the creator for another excellent chance as he set Ledley away. The youngster chose to go outside his man and saw his low shot clip the outside of the post.
Bristol City were kept fairly quiet but were close to taking the lead on 39 minutes when Gavin Williams (although some tell me it was Maynard) cut in from the right and saw a curling effort rebound off the post/bar apex.
The second half was far more even with Bristol City shooting regularly though admittedly from distance. Peter Whittingham saw an awkward bouncing shot saved from 18 yards.
City were given a repreive midway through the second half when Roger Johnson slipped in midfield and looked to have pulled a hamstring. Nicky Maynard collected and went through on goal but should have done better as he pulled his shot wide. Joe Ledley also did brilliantly to block a shot destined for the net.
Cardiff fashioned one clear cut chance when Bothroyd tricked his way down the left before crossing for Rae. The head-down was excellent and Whittingham hit it first time from 15 yards but Basso inexplicably caught the rocket shot on the dive. A yard either side and it was in. City had two decent shouts for late penalties, one a suspect handball and another when Ross McCormack was blocked off but neither was given and the game ended all square.
