Danny Gabbidon: I think Marko Grujic was a lucky boy, he leads with the arm, it’s a blatant penalty for me, the referee’s missed one and Cardiff have got away with it.

Sam Saunders: They’ve got such a young squad and the blueprint is to play from the back, but when you’re in the 47th minute you should be thinking ‘let’s get in at half-time at 1-1 and then go again’.

We’re back underway

This has been a highly entertaining game of football and one that those watching on the telly will certainly be enjoying. It’s two contrasting styles but both being played effectively. It’s a game worthy of being in the Premier League. Both teams have created a number of chances and both keepers have been on song.
