    Here's how the Bluebirds rated in their 4-2 win over Birmingham City

    [​IMG]

    Neil Etheridge 7

    Made a number of hugely important saves, especially when Birmingham were on top, to keep the Bluebirds in the game.

    Lee Peltier 6

    Mostly solid but early on the visitors did have some joy down his side early on.

    Curtis Nelson 8

    What a way to mark your first start, with a goal. The goal gave him a little boost in defence too and he appeared to grow a few inches.

    Aden Flint 6

    Was made to work by the tricky Birmingham midfielders, but put in a couple of last-ditch blocks to keep the Blues at bay. Good in the opposition box, too.

    Joe Bennett 6

    Danny Crowley and Fran Villalba exploited the Cardiff City left-hand side on more than one occasion. But was a different beast in the second half.

    [​IMG]

    Marlon Pack 6

    A calming presence on the ball but the stand-in skipper was caught napping with a few breaks past him in midfield.

    Joe Ralls 9 (star man)

    Scrappy and tenacious when called upon in defence but it was at the other end of the pitch he did the damage with the hat-trick.

    [​IMG]

    Leandro Bacuna 6

    Close to rekindling the form of a few weeks ago. Strong and abrasive in defence and quick and direct in attack.

    Nathaniel Mendez-Laing 8

    Showed glimpses of his lung-busting runs and physicality once again this week. Brilliant for Ralls' second. Will be an important player moving forward.

    Junior Hoilett 7

    Had one brilliant effort tipped over the bar and his delivery is probably in the best in this Cardiff City squad. A great display from him.

    Danny Ward 3

    Had one gilt-edged chance in the each half that he failed to convert and a mindless challenge to get a red card.

    SUBS

    Omar Bogle (on for Mendez-Laing) 5

    Not much to speak of but gave the ball away a couple of times when the pressure was on late on.

    Callum Paterson (on for Hoilett) 6

    Was used as a target man late on in the piece and tried his best to disrupt the opposition defence.

    Sol Bamba (on for Nelson) N/A

    Not on long enough to impact the game, but it was great to see him on the pitch nonetheless.

    Pack and Flint deserve more.
    Nelson, did OK but gave the ball away a lot early on and struggled against Jutkiewicz

    Well then everyone, a game that practically had everything on offer, here’s the Bluebird’s ratings after our triumph over Birmingham.



    Starting XI

    Neil Etheridge - 6 - Thought he was at a bit of fault for the first goal but made some decent saves towards the end.


    Lee Peltier - 7 - That man chews glass, strong in the tackle some half decent football on display and threatened to knock every bastard out in the middle of the scrap.


    Aden Flint - 6 - A much better performance than the derby, looked like he played with purpose.


    Curtis Nelson - 6 - Played a very good game, grabbing a goal but he seems to also show a slight bit of pace at the back.


    Leandro Bacuna - 6 - Quiet for Bacuna but played some decent passes, wasn’t as strong as I anticipated though.


    Joe Ralls - 10 - I obviously have to give Ralls this rating, excluding the goals, Rallsy got himself in great positions and didn’t shirk a tackle, nice passing leading to good buildups and ultimately scoring a well deserved hat trick.


    Marlon Pack - 6 - Again a definite improvement from the Jacks and began to look like the Marlon Pack we signed in the summer.


    NML - 8 - Fantastic performance from him, like vintage Mendez-Laing, taking players on, squaring the ball, played quality.


    Junior Hoilett - 7 - Hoilett also injected fear into the Birmingham defence at time, but was marked well when needed to be.


    Danny Ward - 5 - He was playing quite well but it was a really stupid tackle to make and it does make me fear that Warnock won’t be best pleased, some may argue we played better after the sending off.


    Subs

    Omar Bogle - 4 - Was one of two that was brought on to inject more pace into the game, it worked as he won a pen to seal it for the Bluebirds.


    Callum Paterson - 4 - The second player brought on for pace, as always strong in the air, and actually thought he scored before the ref blew up for the penalty.


    Sol Bamba - N/A - *No Impact* I will say this, the reception Bamba received after coming on was astonishing, great to see him back and well, hopefully proves that he can play as a starter again.


    And that’s my ratings everyone, hope it was a good read, it feels nice to write a positive player ratings again!


    Enjoy your day.

    Jutkiewicz would be a great striker for us.
