Player Ratings – Fulham 1, Cardiff City 0

Neil Etheridge

Has made massive progress this season and a major contender for player of the season. Made some outstanding saves and his distribution has improved under the guidance of goalkeeper coach Andy Dibble 6

Lee Peltier

City have a back five who can defend at the top level. I wanted to see Peltier and Bennett working to get forward and support their attacking players. It didn’t happen enough 6

Sean Morrison (capt)

Gutsy, honest and a leader who will keep battling to the end. Has formed strong partnership with Manga 6

Man of the Match – Bruno Manga

Composed defender who can be a big player for City next season 7

Joe Bennett

Decent job defensively, but Cardiff had to get forward. Bennett and Peltier on the other side needed to gamble at times, but there were few signs they were prepared to do that 7

Aron Gunnarsson

Was this Gunnar’s final appearance in a Bluebirds shirt? Went off suffering from a hamstring problem and that may be the end of the season for the battling midfield player 5

Leandro Bacuna

Given his chance with Ralls and Arter ruled out. A second start and there were moments when he looked dangerous, but there was no end result 6

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing

Embed from Getty Images

Has the ability to make a big impact for City next season. Has pace and a direct running style which troubles defenders. Needs to work on his final delivery 6

Victor Camarasa

You are better than this Victor! Talented, creative midfield player, but strangely didn’t seem up for the challenge. With Ralls and Arter out he was a massive player for City, but fell short and went off with almost 20 minutes left 5

Junior Hoilett

Hit the bar, tracked back to help out City’s defence and overall did well. I’d love to see tricky winger Hoilett adding extra attacking impetus. He has the ability 6

Oumar Niasse

No confidence, no goals in 12 City appearances. Works hard, runs the channels, but struggled before making way for Ward just after the hour 4
