HUGHTON CAN BEMOAN LACK OF LUCK
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.
