RATINGS – Cardiff Crushed – Villa Players Rated & Man Of The Match.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

  • (6) – Gollini – Little to do today & not much he could do for Cardiff’s goal.  Flapped at more than one cross, which remains cause for concern.  Otherwise untroubled.

  • (6) – Hutton – A steady performance & coped well with threat down the right flank.  Limited success going forward.

  • (8) – Chester – Another impressive performance.  Controlled & commanding.

  • (7) – Baker – A solid first half performance until forced off with a groin strain.

  • (6) – Elphick – SUB – Replaced injured Baker and had a solid 45 minutes.  A strong leader but distribution can let him down at times.

  • (8) – Amavi – A fine performance and further evidence of the Frenchman’s true quality.  A first half assist was capped with a solid defensive display.

  • (9) – Jedinak – MOTM – Marauding display of power and presence over 90 minutes.  Countless interceptions, clearances, headers won and disruption to the opposition.

  • (6) – Westwood – A busy and hard working performance was marred by a poor touch in the first half to gift Cardiff a goal.  Quality & confidence remain a question mark.  

  • (7) Adomah – Another impressive display, providing a constant threat out wide.  Grew into the game and finished his chance coolly.  Fatigued as game wore on.

  • 6 – Gestede – SUB – Hard working when introduced but found chances limited.

  • (8) – Grealish – Increased in effectiveness as the game approached the latter stages.  Visitors unable to cope with movement and tricky interplay.

  • (5) – Ayew – Lots of running and time on the ball amounted to little.  An ineffective performance that saw him subbed on the hour.

  • (6) – Agbonlahor – SUB – Guilty of indecision when one on one with the keeper, resulting in a miss.  Looked sharper than most recent outings & gave defence something to think about.

  • (8) – Kodjia – Another tireless performance & a fine headed goal.  Always a threat on the ball & drives the team forward relentlessly.
