Football Scores: Cardiff City 1-1 Birmingham

An error from Neil Etheridge helped Cardiff City produce one of the close football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Jeremie Bela opened the scoring in the 22nd minute before Etheridge fouled Max Watters in the penalty area. Will Vaulks stepped up to dispatch the penalty to earn a point for the hosts. The result meant that Birmingham have not won on their last nine trips to Wales.

Managers Reaction 

Cardiff’s Steve Morison: “We have people in the building who can score goals. It’s just about confidence and getting in the right areas to take chances. We get into that area of the pitch by playing really good football but the top teams have the best players in that area of the pitch and we will be looking at bringing in new people to help in that respect this summer. We’ve got some good stuff done already recruitment-wise and will be getting more done, but people are at clubs now so nothing can happen until June 1. Hopefully, people will be true to their word because I’m sure everybody will be pleased with the players we are bringing in.”

Birmingham’s Lee Bowyer: “The ball was put on a plate for young Jordan by Onel (Hernandez) but I won’t be criticizing him because what I saw was a 17-year-old putting himself in that situation and getting himself in the box to get that chance. He didn’t then blast it over the bar – he was in full control and tried to do the right thing, but the ball just slid wide. It was the chance that would have put the game to bed, but we’ve said that so many times this season and I’m disappointed that we didn’t win the game because I felt we were the better side for large periods.”
