Just boarded the coach for the Journey home,we got a hard earned point tonight.

Not great football,but a good battling display for an away team.

Brighton had the first 20 minutes and opened us up on a few occasions and deserved to score. David Marshall was keeping us in the game until many say it was David Marshalls fault, for just standing there?

What I was very pleased with was when they scored,we attacked them within a minute and Kenwyne Jones looped the ball over their goalie to make it 1-1 and silence the Brighton fans and send the 400 Cardiff fans in to raptures.

We got away with a clear penalty when Whittingham hand balled in the penalty area.

Going in at half time I thought we were fortunate to be drawing.

The second half Brighton once again took the game to us, with David Marshall called upon on at least 4 or 5 times.

Pilkington for me,missed a point blank shot and made it easy for the Brighton goalie.

City started to put a few passes together,but never really threatened Brighton.

Brighton over all though will see it as 2pts lost and City will see it as a good away point.

Us fans were happy at the end to come away with a draw and personally I think it was a good away point.
My man of the match David Marshall without a doubt.
Russell Slade was there once again and is advising Scott Young and Danny Gabbidon.

I said I believe we needed 4pts from 6pts and we have got the first point.

Blackpool next and has to be 3pts.
