Player Ratings – Cardiff City 0, Huddersfield Town 0

Neil Etheridge

A third clean sheet in four Premier League matches. Made one outstanding save, but neither team produced much offensive quality and there were few goal bound efforts either way 7

Bruno Ecuele Manga

There are times when the big defender looks decent at right-back, but others when he struggles. Quality defender, but needs to operate at centre-back, his natural position. City need to sign a full-back 6

Sean Morrison (capt)

The skipper will be delighted with the resolve of Bluebirds and the clean sheet, but boy do they have to produce more going forward 6

Sol Bamba

Hurt in a collision with Morrison when both men went down. Thankfully, they were able to continue. Individually, none of the back four were at their best, but how they battled as a unit. Dominant in the air 7

Joe Bennett

Suffered a heartbreak moment when referee Lee Mason pointed to the penalty spot after his challenge on Florent Hadergjonaj, but the official quickly changed his mind and didn’t even award a free-kick. Replays, though, suggested Bennett should have been penalised for a foul. Made some excellent blocks and challenges 7

Aron Gunnarsson

At his best Gunnar is a high quality box-to-box midfield player and there were times when he showed that against Huddersfield. Defensively sound, but overall inconsistent 6

Man of the Match – Nathaniel Mendez-Laing

Lively and produced the main moments when City looked a threat, albeit without creating any real chances. Target for a poorly timed tackle, but kept patrolling down the right. ‘He did well for an hour’ said Warnock 7

Victor Camarasa

The sight of City’s Spanish playmaker was bitterly disappointing for the Bluebirds. Camarasa has settled into Premier League life, but he’ll be in the treatment room this week 6

Harry Arter

A crucial part of this Bluebirds team, a heartbeat player who keeps things moving. Total commitment – and booked for the sixth time this season 7

Junior Hoilett

This was better from a player who had the ability to make a difference for City in their survival battle. Warnock was convinced City should have been awarded a penalty when the Canadian was fouled. BBC Match of the Day pundits watched replays of the incident and their view was that Town’s Hadergjonaj took the ball first and it was NOT a spot-kick 7

Callum Paterson

Danny Ward was due to start in attack, but a training ground accident – which involved Paterson – meant he could not be selected. The Scot gave everything he had, but service was poor and little worked 5
