Marshall Boost For Cardiff City

Cardiff City goalkeeper David Marshall would normally have been on somewhat of a downer following a 4-1 thrashing by Watford this week. To concede 4 to a side below you in the league is never cause for celebration but Marshall may yet be in for a moral boost.

Watford were outstanding. Cardiff City were jaded and off form. David Marshall has been short of confidence for quite some time, characterised by some nervy decision making and simply woeful kicking. His lack of form has continued since the Wembley defeat and after regaining his place between the posts courtesy of an injury to Tom Heaton, Marshall still looks nervous and short of confidence.

Against Watford thoug, Marshall could not be blamed for any of the goals, after being let down by dodgy defending for the first, at a corner, was wrongfooted by a scuffed effort and beaten by a late penalty. Early in the game however, he pulled off an outstanding penalty save to deny Danny Graham.

Cardiff City have not been lucky with penalties over the past decade. Neil Alexander, a fine shot stopper, had an appalling record, while fans will struggle to recall any penalty saves - Mark Grew?!?!

Marshall's stop, low to his right was a brilliant save and whilst in made no difference to the overall result, it is hoped Marshall will receive a boost from the save and refind some lost confidence. He remains a very good goalkeeper, and looks set to continue between the CCFC posts. Hopefully, Marshall will find himself in top form once again and the chants of 'Scotland's number One' will once again become a regular occurance at CCS.
