'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Cardiff 1-1 Stoke (Player Ratings)

David Forde: 5/10

Has not made a significant save to date, collected several crosses but few cleanly. Rushed out rashly twice and has yet to convince most fans.


Kevin McNaughton: 6/10

Solid and dependable in defence, he tried to support in attack but was unable to supply cutting edge.


Chris Gunter: 5/10

Full of energy but sometimes runs away from support. His slip nearly proved costly for City.


Roger Johnson: 8/10 (M.O.M.)

Superb performance as the centre-back picked up MOM award in consecutive home games. Dominant in the air, assured on the ground and a threat in attack. Also showed nice touches to start moves and positive runs to support.


Darren Purse: 5/10

An off day for the skipper, he misjudged several challenges and was showed up by Fuller. Distribution from the back was dodgy and was forced off with restricted movement late on.


Peter Whittingham: 5/10

Plenty of crosses but few found their target, he was well marshalled but reluctant to take on Hoefkens in 1 on 1 situations. Some deft touches but fialed to impose himself.



Paul Parry: 6/10

Started well, but continually drawn infield. So predictable when he cuts inside but showed positive intent and posed somewhat of a threat.


Joe Ledley: 7/10

A good game for the youngster as he provided the main driving force in midfield and was less guilty than others of losing possession. Comfortable on the ball but couldn`t find the killer pass.


Stephen McPhail: 5/10

Started well with some excellent passes but lost confidence and too often ends up passing backwards. Hurried into giving away possession too often and slowed down moves rather than driving them. Always there to receive a pass but rarely bursts forward and first goal looks as distant as ever.


Steve Thompson: 6/10

Won ball in the air, but not in dangerous positions. Thommo worked hard and nearly broke through several times, he needs better service but come up with a great flick-on for the equaliser.

Michael Chopra: 6/10

AWOL for much of the match and couldn`t get a grip on the game. Showed positive intent when in possession but rarely in dangerous areas. Wasted one great chance but popped up in final minute to score 22nd of season.

Good goal by CHopra but he wasnt at his best!

Agree with most of those, Purse was poor but Johnson is becoming a superstar - what a performance again! A little harsh on Whitts, he was ok
