Another goalless draw v 10 men

Huddersfield 0 - 0 Cardiff City.

A second point picked up from three games played but the lack of goals is a worry.

For the second week in a row City played a reasonable amount of the match against 10 men but couldn't score, let alone win. Jonathan Hogg was sent off for putting his head into Harry Arter's face in the 63rd minute, despite the free kick being given away by Arter who was booked in the incident.

Cardiff are the only Premier League team wthout a goal but sit in 14th place in the table above sides like West Ham, who have lost all three games, and Huddersfield and Southampton who only have one point.

City were poor in the opening half, 29% possession against a side they have to finsh above to have any hope of staying up. The red card though saw a swing in Cardiff's favour and a number of chances were created but the finshing just wasn't there.

Sean Morrison missed a free header, Ward produced a decent save from Lossl who cleared with his right foot, Reid almost broke through on goal late on but Lossl was out quick to smother and another Reid effort rolled inches wide.

A few shots from distance failed to trouble the keeper.

Now City face Arsenal H, Chelsea A and Man City H. So we might be grateful for the points already gained but that's two weeks in a row now we have failed to beat 10 men of teams we are likely to be battling against come the end of the season.

On a sour note Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, starting the game for the injured Junior Hoilett, looked to have picked up a serious injury and he was subbed in the opening 15 mins, departing the pitch on a stretcher. So we hope he is not to badly hurt.

So bring on The Arsenal (who got their first win today).
