How they rated

Wales On Sunday - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

NEIL ETHERIDGE

Saved what he had to, though they were ones you would ex­pect him to. Dis­tri­bu­tion ac­cu­racy a lit­tle off and mis-kick nearly led to disas­ter.

LEE PELTIER

Had real trou­ble stopping the in­ter­chang­ing Ful­ham for­wards get­ting a run on him and feed­ing the mid­dle. Booked on a dif­fi­cult af­ter­noon.

SEAN MORRISON (C)

Re­cov­ered from early book­ing and or­gan­ised best he could as Cardiff strug­gled with Ful­ham run­ners.

SOL BAMBA

Dis­ap­point­ing af­ter­noon from a player who has been a Bluebirds rock. Pulled out of po­si­tion a few times too many and didn’t com­mand like he can, though did rally with some key tack­les.

JOE BEN­NETT

Was stripped for pace down his wing in early stages which didn’t bode well, but put in de­ter­mined ef­fort with some key chal­lenges – one of which should have stopped the dan­ger for the goal if he was sup­ported.

ARON GUN­NARS­SON

Looked very sharp from the off and did much to leave Ful­ham re­ly­ing on counter at­tack, while was of­ten the best op­tion to drive the team for­ward as they became penned in.

LOIC DAMOUR

Had looked a threat early on, but faded from any in­volve­ment and wasn’t as strong as Cardiff needed him to be.

NATHANIEL MEN­DEZ-LAING

Couldn’t de­liver the end prod­uct he has been ca­pa­ble of, but didn’t let frus­tra­tion get the bet­ter of him and re­fused to give up, tee­ing up Feeney for the cross for Ward to level.

KEN­NETH ZO­HORE

Had lit­tle to work off, but couldn’t make the ball stick when it came his way. Star sta­tus meant it was a sur­prise to see him brought off, but de­ci­sion jus­ti­fied when his re­place­ment scored.

JU­NIOR HOILETT

An af­ter­noon when not a lot came off for the wide­man, from set-piece to significant in­volve­ment through the match as Cardiff were starved of the chances to let him loose.
