Cardiff City Lucky To Escape With Severnside Draw

Cardiff City grabbed a late point courtesy of an uncharacteristic mistake from Bristol City goalkeeper Adrian Basso.


Cardiff City opted for a Ledley-McPhail partnership in midfield and it did not work. Along with the anonymous Whittingham, Cardiff struggled to keep possession but did go close with headers from Roger Johnson and Gabor Gyepes. Carey saw a long shot well saved by debutant Taylor in a relatively even first half.


However, after the break, Bristol City were in control and deservedly took the lead through Nicky Maynard. The former Crewe Alexandra striker had been caught offside numerous times but cut in from the left, skipping several half hearted challenges before firing part Stuart Taylor.


McIndoe and Adebola had chances to finish the game while Cardiff City rarely threatened. McCormack saw two free-kicks saved before the Scottish substitute latched onto a parried Eddie Johnson effort -= Basso though he had time but McCormack finished from close range as the Brazilian grasped for the ball.


Cardiff City were fortunate today - the midfield was extremely poor and gave the forwards little chance. We were solid in defence but the Bristol City possession and pressure was bound to tell eventually. A point is no mean feat at Ashton Gate, but we need to be much much better than this.

Bristol City 1-1 Cardiff City

eddie should be starting. the midfield were poor cos we kept passing over their heads. we dont pass the ball through the midfield. the subs injected life. a point is fair.

.. does anyone else groan as I do when Wittingham is given a free kick to take - he seems to have a problem lifting the ball .. passing from midfield should be [mainly] forward not across or back .. and we seemed today quite close to that curse of last season - tyring to pass the bloody ball into the net .. so everyone sit down and watch film of Jay's strike against Doncaster ..

A point away from home is never a bad result at this stage of the season.
