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