Luton 0-0 Cardiff City (report)

Luton 0-0 Cardiff City (report)

Cardiff City failed to make their chances pay yet again as they drew a blank against Luton Town. The result means that Cardiff are without a win in 10 games and have drawn their last four encounters.

Six draws in nine games has seen Cardiff slip down the table rapidly and they now lie outside the play-off places in 8th position.

Kevin McNaughton missed the game with an injury, replaced by Alan Wright while Willo Flood again started on the right wing. Two former Bluebirds lined up against City in cultured midfielder Richard Langley and defender Russell Perrett.

Cardiff's form has improved over recent weeks and they again started brightly with a Riccy Scimeca drive flashing wide in the first minute. Cardiff dominating in terms of possession but Luton's Rowan Vine looked a threat at the other end causing some problems for Purse and Loovens.

The second half was a similar affair with Cardiff in control but lacking any direct threats on goal. Chopra taking an extra touch on a couple of occasions and missing the chance to shoot. One Chopra attempt was clawed away at the near post by 'keeper Dean Kiely in what was probably City's best chance.

On 65 minutes Cardiff keeper Neil Alexander made an outstanding save to deny Vine after a goalmouth scramble. Vine stabbed the ball goalwards from inside the 6 yard box with Alexander going the wrong way but the Scottish international somehow reacted and Loovens cleared. Rowan Vine had already turned away in celebration, but it was a superb reflex save by Alexander.

Luton's David Bell was dismissed for a second yellow card for a push on Willo Flood but Cardiff couldnt make their man advantage count. Chopra went close with a header from 6 yards but the ball was too high and he failed to make good contact.


It was a decent performance again, and the Feeney/Vine combination will cause problems for any Championship defence. Its another disappointing reslut and City desperately need a win and also a new striker who can come off the bench and grab a goal with Cardiff having failed to score in 3 of the last 4 games.

At least the Bluebirds are unbeaten in 2007 !
