Cardiff 0-0 Crystal Palace

Cardiff 0-0 Crystal Palace

Cardiff City's barren spell continued in front of a disappointing Ninian Park crowd to extend the winless streak to 9 games now.

Although results are still not going City's way, their form is steadily improving and they dominated a lacklustre Crystal Palace yesterday, but yet again failed to score the vital first goal.

Willo Flood came in for Paul Parry and had an excellent game, full of direct running and bullish energy. The sheer volume of crosses he put in was commendable and he went close with two of Cardiff's better chances, one well saved by Flinders the other going narrowly wide.

Riccy Scimeca went close with a header from a Ledley cross and Chopra missed a decent second half chance but it was not to be.

Crystal Palace failed to create much up front but a Jobi McAnuff header, when unmarked was a real let-off for Cardiff. A moment of controversy followed when Clinton Morrison latched onto a headed Loovens' backpass and slotted home but was adjudged to have been offside. Loovens definately made the header but the referee was insistent that Morrison became active before that moment and the goal was disallowed.

It was another 0-0 scoreline for City (their 4th in 8 games) and their 6th draw in 8 overall. The Bluebirds have slipped to eighth in the table and out of the play-off positions but the signs are there that a recovery is underway. Cardiff dominated yesterday and deserved the win, players looked to have more confidence and a 1-0 win could chancge the season around. The transfer window opens tomorrow and Cardiff are looking to strengthen but they now look a decent side again and capable of winning games.

Next up is Luton (A) on New Year's Day.
