Cardiff's Kasper & World Class Save

Cardiff City earned a point against Leicester City on Monday night. The game was hard fought and both teams had chances to win it.


For Cardiff's part, we were the better team for much of the game - however the defence splitting pass, or extra foot of space needed to shoot was not there. Leicester City looked somewhat panicked in defence, and most Championship strikeforces would have scored.


Leicester also had their chances, a spell of intense pressure towards the end of the game nearly yielded a winner. However, it was a chance in the first half that will be remembered.


A free kick from the Leicester left was not cleared, and after bouncing around the box - eventually fell to defender Richard Stearman just yards from the line - a simple volley home.


Just as Foxes fans were shouting 'goal', and Bluebirds fans fearing the worst, on-loan goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel produced a breathtaking save to stop a certain goal.


An element of luck is always needed in these situations but Schmeichel made himself huge and got a strong enough hand to divert the ball off target. Remarkable reflexes and a truly world-class save.



Man-of-the-match Schmeichel told Sky Sports:


'I just tried to tip it over, sometimes you are lucky and sometimes not'


Dave Jones described the work as "his dad" (former Manchester United and Denmark great, Peter Schmeichel.


Captain Darren Purse described the save as 'fantastic' and that it gave the Bluebirds a great platform from which to build.



That`s the second clean sheet in consecutive games now, it`s great to have a settled and competent goalkeeper behind our defence - now to concentrate on the attack....
