Cardiff City earned what could yet prove to be a crucial point at home to Reading to maintain their push to secure a Championship play-off place at The Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday. Kelvin Etuhu went closest for Cardiff with a low drive turned round the post. Peter Whittingham put a half-chance wide after 26 minutes, connecting with Jay Bothroyd’s low cross at the near post after he had been sent clear down the right by Michael Chopra.
But the chances of a breakthrough started to diminish as the half wore on, with the game becoming somewhat scrappy. Chopra was replaced by Ross McCormack at the break but Cardiff survived to extend their unbeaten run to eight games, while Reading have now lost just two of their last 15 league games.
