    Welcome to tonight's Player Ratings Thread for our Midweek clash with relegation battlers Charlton Athletic, our last encounter took place in Neil Harris' first game in charge of the Bluebirds which saw City come back from a 2 goal deficit to draw 2-2. Another win for Cardiff will boost our playoff ambitions yet again but it won't come easy as Charlton also needs the points in their fight for survival. This could be tasty.

    Ratings will be up as soon after the game as possible :thumbup:

    Come on City!

    Well a poor performance from both teams, how could this match impact our playoff charge? Anyway here is tonight's player ratings.

    Starting XI
    Alex Smithies - 6 - Not troubled at all today, solid as always.

    Dion Sanderson - 6 - I like the ambition to get forward and got himself into some threatening positions.

    Curtis Nelson - 8 - A very decisive block in the second half, didn't lose a single challenge and bested every opponent in the air, Nelson has come off this break very well. MOTM.

    Sean Morrison - 7 - Same as Nelson Mozza has displayed dominance over others since coming back but thought his passing was off.

    Joe Bennett - 6 - Hardly troubled but noticed his decline in offering anything going forward today.

    Leandro Bacuna - 6 - Offers pace in the middle but not effective, mainly due to our poor performance.

    Marlon Pack - 4 - Dreadful performance today from Pack, his passing was woeful and just doesn't offer anything at all.

    Joe Ralls - 6 - One of our better players today, decent going forward but would be a stretch to say he created much.

    Albert Adomah - 5 - His head evidently wasn't in the game today which is a shame seeing it's his last game, can't say he'll be a big miss mind.

    NML - 6 - Poor first touch when on the ball today, mainly due to poor service he really didn't get to showcase his pace, definitely a starter though.

    Robert Glatzel - N/A - *forced off too early*


    Subs Used
    Callum Paterson - 5 - Isolated up top, a poor choice to put him up front from Harris imo, I feel sorry for Pato he really does try but he's got no help whatsoever.

    Lee Tomlin - 5 - His introduction brought a bit of calm to the game with half decent passing but never broke into his stride.

    Junior Hoilett - N/A - *No impact*

    Will Vaulks - N/A - *No impact* as a side note though why he was brought on for Ralls I'll never know, Pack should've gone off.

    There we go then folks, not a game to watch i must admit but a point nonetheless, thanks for reading and enjoy your week

    Alex Smithies 7

    Untroubled in the first half and calm with the ball at his feet.

    Dion Sanderson 7

    Still can look a little frazzled with the ball under his feet under pressure, but the space he affords his team-mates with his bombing runs continues to be a vital asset.

    Sean Morrison 7

    Solid and dependable. Made one brilliant sliding tackle to stymie a dangerous Charlton attack in the first half.

    Curtis Nelson 9 (star man)

    Made an incredible block on Andre Green in the first half and was peerless in the air for the entire evening. Made a goal-saving block on Jake Forster-Caskey, too. A big performance from him.

    Joe Bennett 8

    About as good a Joe Bennett performance as we have seen for some time. Charlton didn't look like creating down his flank and his partnership with Mendez-Laing was bright and will be encouraging moving forward.

    Marlon Pack 7


    Reintroduced into the side and swept up well at the base of midfield. Josh Cullen was a tricky customer but Pack was always aware of his presence and sought to shut him down.

    Leandro Bacuna 7

    Continues to win over his detractors. Covers so much ground, is so quick and so effective at both ends of the pitch. Another very solid outing.

    Joe Ralls 8

    Really growing into this playmaker role in Lee Tomlin's stead. Crisp passing and found himself popping up in the box frequently. Another very good performance from him.

    Albert Adomah 6

    A frustrating final performance for the winger. Whipped in one dangerous cross but just didn't quite click for him as it has done so often in a Bluebirds shirt.

    Nathaniel Mendez-Laing 8

    He deserved this starting spot and, boy, did he show us. Powerful, pacy, direct with his runs, he looked so hungry for it. The only thing missing was a goal.

    Robert Glatzel 6

    Some nice hold-up play, but, in truth, struggled really to get in the game before he was hooked just before half time after suffering a nasty head injury.

    SUBS

    Callum Paterson (on for Glatzel 45) 6

    Very few clear-cut opportunities for him to impress himself on the game. As combative as ever but just didn't get the chances.

    Lee Tomlin (on for Bacuna 65) 7

    Certainly added a verve to the City attack. His clever passes opened up the defence on more than one occasion.

    Junior Hoilett (on for Mendez-Laing 65) 6

    Just not his night. Missed a golden opportunity to put City ahead and misplaced a couple of passes as Cardiff tried to force the issue.

    Pack 7. Where did that come from? Deserves a 4 at best. I am still seething he was picked in starting 11. Not good enough to be on the bench in my opinion. We are not going to win many games with him in the midfield. He is far too slow and passing is piss poor. Drop him!!
