Heartbreak For Cardiff City As Birmingham Strike
Cardiff City were distraught tonight as Birmingham City claimed a late minute equaliser through Lee Bowyer just seconds after chants of 'what a load of rubbish' could be heard from the Blues fans.
The truth is that Cardiff City dominated the game and deserved the win. They outplayed, outfought and outclassed Birmingham City and should have been home and dry long before the 90th minute. The Blues did create some panic in the Bluebirds box but were largely contained. Cameron Jerome was the biggest threat but too often was offside as we nullified the threat of Brum's wingers.
It was halfway through the second period when Joe Ledley struck a cracker from 20 yards to give us a deserved lead. McCormack was superb all game and was unlucky not to score himself.
However, it turned out to be bitter disappointment again for Cardiff City as with just seconds left - Lee Bowyer punced to save the Blues blushes and secure an unlikely point. One nil is never a save lead, and we have paid yet again for not making chances count earlier.
A point away at Birmingham City? Not half bad - but no Cardiff City official, fan or player can feel anything but bitter disappointment tonight.
