Goalless at CCS as city prove they are Premier League

31 August 2013 06:29
They might have had some scary moments but Cardiff City proved again they can compete at this level.

On another day City could have conceded a penalty, not seen Marshall in superb form or not had Gary Medel on top form and they may have lost this game.

In possession and on the attack Cardiff could themselves have scored and were always a threat when breaking with Kim, Bellamy and Campbell. I felt we need more pace through midfield and we could have upped it another level today.

After last weeks win over Man City expectations were raised but a point today is a great point and four points from three games sees Cardiff in 10th place after the 3pm kick offs today.

Medel and Caulker stood out for me for their defending but the work rate of every player was superb.

Fellani was the pantomime villain and the target of the City fans who were superb again with their suport as a new record crowd of over 27300.

Now a two week break that we can enjoy with some smug satisfaction
