Cardiff Player Ratings (vs ITFC)
Did nothing wrong and not at fault for either goal. Few other action to deal with. Still no penalty save.
Calm and committed, did really well until he made way in 2nd half. Conservative approach but solid enough.
Full of running an energy, very effective performance and desperately unlucky to concede penalty.
Two goals and a strong performance but both ITFC goals came from poor corner organisation.(M.O.M.)
Fine in the air but looked more vulnerable on the ground. Quietly effective but failed to dominate.
Asked to switch again and looked so comfortable in midfield. Did everything asked and one brilliant late surge left 3 in his wake. Another good performance.
Failed to impose himself at all as the game passed him by at times. A little uncomfortable in the centre as the creativity was missing but made some decent challenges and never stopped running
Defensively sound but unable to drive forward as earlier in the season. Threatened to dominate at times but never quite made it.
Defensively poor and lacked positional awareness. Tried hard in attack but too often ran away from support and the final ball was inadequate throughout.
Preferred to Thompson but only good for holding up the ball. No joy in the air and still looks off the pace.
Tried hard but looks unconfident, the intelligent runs were less frequent as he was forced to feed off scraps. No clear chances.
THOMPSON: Made a difference and won penalty but unable to provise any quality ball and never threatened to score himself.
GLOMBARD: Lively out-of-position but no direct threat to Ipswich.
COOPER: Made little impact, some neat touches but no telling contributions.
