Cardiff City Battle Back For Hard Earned Point

Cardiff City gcame from behind for the first time this season to record a draw in a hotly contested encounter against Crystal Palace.

The quality of football on show was far from exquisite and neither team managed to find the fluency or tempo they desired. Palace went ahead with a peculiar goal when Whittingham and Kennedy allowed a cross from the left which was stood up at the far post. Lee and Hudson went up for it and the Cardiff skipper managed to get a touch only to guide the ball down and through Marshall's legs. The Bluebirds keeper was rooted and didn't move.

Conceding did at least sup City on and added more impetus to the play. It wasn't long before the equaliser came when Chopra linked with Burke and allowed Whittingham to poke home from close range.

Cardiff endedd the half much the stronger, but rarely threatened Speroni's goal. A blocked Chopra effort the closest while Anthony Gerrard saw a curling effort well saved.

The second half was a drab affair with newither team able to pass well enough to threaten. The ball spent long periods in the air, and an injury to Bothroyd disupted Cardiff's play though did allow a welcome return for Ross McCormack.

Chris Burke showed some attacking intent, while Sean Scannell was denied by a good Rae sliding challenge as both sides failed to dominate. Cardiff City were aggreived late on when Joe Ledley was felled in the area, the contact was not massive but Ledley was past his man and had a good chance to shoot. Ledley had earlier slipped when centimetres from converting a Chopra cut-back.

An ugly fracas followed the final whistle but Cardiff recorded a rare draw and a well-earned point.
