The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BRIGHTON will be scratch­ing their heads and won­der­ing how they didn’t win this one.

Si­mon Moore re­peat­edly kept the visi­tors in the tie with a num­ber of top-class saves through­out the game.

But the Bluebirds failed to threaten, aside for the open­ing goal, cour­tesy of the im­pres­sive Joe Ma­son.

Gor­don Greer pro­duced what will be one of the misses of the sea­son late on, fail­ing to con­vert from two yards which would have sealed all three points for the hosts.

But Cardiff stood firm in the face of an on­slaught of Al­bion at­tacks and will be thank­ful for a point that they were made to work for.

Chris Hughton’s men looked good again and well wor­thy of their early po­si­tion to­wards the sum­mit of the Cham­piosnhip ta­ble.

How­ever, they will curse the fact Cardiff were able to fin­ish with 11 men af­ter Fabio put him­self in dan­ger of a red card dur­ing a bat­tle against Solly March.
