My View / Opinion
By Annis Abraham
‘ NEW GOALIE BRIAN MURPHY WAS SUPERB & KENNETH ZOHORE SCORES/BUT ‘
Why the hell do we conceede after we take the lead?
First-Half Cardiff City were just by a bit the better team and deserved their one goal lead.
Bruno Manga was outstanding and Kenneth Johore was excellent.
Second-half City were under pressure from the first minute and attack after attacker City finally conceeded,but thanks to Murphy who kept us in the game,we managed to scrape a 2-2 draw,even though in the 89th min City thought they had won the game.
There is a problem with our defence? ? ?
to be honest 2-2 was a fair result for both sides.

Cardiff players traveled to Brentford today knowing that if any of them were not up to the standard manager Neil Warnock wanted,they would be told they could go this coming January.
Cardiff City had conceded five goals in their last two games and Warnock has stressed how worried he is of his defence.
Today City faced a Brentford team that were very unpredictable this season and had also had lately a few home defeats.
A poor start by Cardiff,both teams not really doing anything then in the 23rd min Sean Morrison was brought down for Peter Whittingham to score from the penalty spot 0-1 City :thumbright: :thumbright: :bluebird: :bluebird:
Cardiff had the ball in the net again but Morrison was offside.
Zohore was everywhere and never stopped :bluebird:
Lee Peltier stood out and Bruno Manga was excellent.
City were the better team
HALF TIME STATS:
Shots on target: 2-3

Peter Whittingham was replaced by Stuart O’Keefe at half-time .
