    Time:90'
    • Cardiff City
    • Bristol City
    • 90+3' Kilkenny tries a klong range drive but it is a long way over the crossbar
    • 90+2' The end of this one is very scrappy and Cardiff have gone right off the boil in the latter stages
    • 90+1' There are going to be four additional minutes in Cardiff
    • 89' The kick is played into the heart of the penalty box, Gestede jumps in front of James and the keeper misses the ball completely, it goes wide though
    • 88' Cardiff are doing well to take the sting out of Bristol City's attacks now, Conway wins a free-kick in the City half and can wind the clock down now
    • 86' Campbell-Ryce has certainly made a difference, he gets to the bye-line and gets a cross in, Elliot can't make anything of it though and it is cleared
    • 85' City going for it, leaving just three at the back, it is surely too late to mount a comeback now though
    • 82' Straight down the other end Mason puts the ball in the back of the net to seemingly provide the perfect response, he was flagged offside though
    • 81' GOAL FOR BRISTOL CITY!!! The visitors have continued to plug away and it is Maynard who scores it. Great work from Campbell-Ryce who was tenacious on the right before picking out Maynard at the near post who finished well.
    • 79' John Stead picks up a yellow card
    • 76' Great early throw out from James to Campbell-Ryce he broke at tremendous speed but his cross was very poor when it came to it
    • 75' Conway tees up Miller on the edge of the box and he strikes a shot well but it is blocked
    • 73' Whittingham with a powerful drive, just wide of the post
    • 72' One of the goalscorers Rob Earnshaw is replaced by Rudy Gestede
    • 71' Bristol City will keep trying as Jamal Campbell-Ryce comes on for Adomah
    • 69' Mason still full of running, he probably should have crossed as he burst into the box from the left but he took the shot on which went narrowly wide
    • 68' City looking very ragged as Spence boots the ball into touch when under no real pressure
    • 66' The impressive Don Cowie tries a drive from the edge of the box that is narrowly over the bar
    • 63' Nayatanga and Miller battling ti out on the right flank and the Scot wins a free-kick, Whittingham swings it in but James claims it well
    • 59' John Stead comes on for Brett Pitman
    • 58' Bristol City enjoying a spell of possession that they haven't been able to as yet, they are not really threatening though
    • 56' Two successive corners nearly drop to Miller but his efforts are again blocked
    • 55' Good work from Mason and Miller but neither can get a clear shot at goal, Mason's effort is deflected behind for a corner
    • 53' Bristol City look powerless to resist this result, Cardiff look far more likely to get the next goal
    • 51' The interval doesn't seem to have improved anything for the visitors as Cardiff have all the ball again
    • 50' Bristol City have made one change at the break which sees Martyn Woolford come on for Jamie McAllister
    • 49' They are a touch behind in Cardiff but the second half is now underway
    • 45' Graham Salisbury brings the first-half to a close in Cardiff as well with the home side three goals to the good.
    • 43' Conway looking bright again as he runs at the Bristol defence, but he is a bit isolated as Cardiff are not so fussed about committing players forward
    • 41' Cardiff looking extremely comfortable, it almost feels like the last five minutes of the match rather than the first-half
    • 38' Earnshaw is felled mid-way into the Bristol City half, Whittingham clips it towards the back post, Miller wins the first header but it is then cleared
    • 36' Bristol City still plugging away as Maynard and Adomah link up, but the former's shot is well over the bar
    • 35' GOAL FOR CARDIFF!!! The match could be all over already. Cowie gets a good effort in on goal which James does well to save but Earnshaw showed his predatory instincts as he buries the rebound. 3-0
    • 31' Bristol City showing they can still pose a threat, Adomah gets to the bye-line but slips and the ball goes out of play
    • 29' Mason looks lively again, turning up on the left and taking on McAllister but he defends well
    • 27' The midfield of Cardiff are playing some very neat football, Conway and Cowie look to have fitted in very well
    • 26' Out of nowhere really Bristol City have a great chance, Adomah with a break at pace and gets a cross in, Cole Skuse then crashed an effort against the bar when he should really have scored
    • 25' Cardiff want more, Earnshaw and Miller get efforts in that are blocked, David James kicks the post in frustration with his under-pressure defence
    • 22' GOAL FOR CARDIFF!!! Craig Conway has been excellent so far and he has capped his performance with a goal. McNaughton slid the ball into his path and Conway burst forward, he hit a low drive from the edge of the area which James had no answer to
    • 21' Lovely move from Cardiff involving McNaughton and Cowie, a cross is delivered and Earnshaw gets a shot in which is only narrowly wide of the post
    • 20' Mason has been impressive since coming on, he wins a corner which Conway takes but it is well cleared by McAllister
    • 18' Conway looking lively for Cardiff as he breaks down the left, he gets a cross in which Miller heads over from inside the area
    • 17' GOAL FOR CARDIFF CITY!!! The initial corner is cleared but a second delivery comes in and finds the captain Mark Hudson who is completely unmarked in the box and has the simplest of tasks to head it home.
    • 16' Anthony Gerrard with a rare foray forward and attempts a powerful drive from range, it is deflected just wide though
    • 15' Jordan Spence the second player to be booked, not good news for City
    • 13' Whittingham whips in the free-kick but it is easily held by David James
    • 12' Jamie McAllister goes in a bit late on Joe Mason and picks up the first booking of the game for his troubles
    • 11' Reasonably even start at the Cardiff City Stadium, the home side probably just shading it but Bristol City are acquitting themselves well
    • 10' Joe Mason is on to replace Gunnarsson
    • 8' Aron Gunnarsson has gone off injured for Cardiff, he is yet to be replaced
    • 6' Bristol City showing some adventure early on, they get forward and win a corner which McAllister swings in but it is well dealt with by Marshall
    • 5' Whittingham showing his excellent technique as he hits a volley from a McNaughton cross, it is blocked though and cleared away
    • 3' Promising looking break for Bristol City comes to an abrupt end when Adomah takes his eye off the ball and lets it run out of play
    • 2' Earnshaw gets the first shot of the game in very early on in Cardiff, it is speculative though from 25 yards and is comfortably wide
    • 14.46 Bristol City: James; Spence, Nyatanga, Wilson, McAllister; Skuse, Elliot, Kilkenny, Adomah; Pitman, Maynard
    • 14.45 Team News from Cardiff City Stadium: Cardiff: Marshall; McNaughton, Hudson, Gerrard, Taylor; Whittingham, Cowie, Conway, Gunnarsson; Miller, Earnshaw
