36 - Martin puts out for a throw level with City's box. Standard routine awaits.
37 - Klose away. Again. Back to Cardiff's goalkeeper then pumped forward. Klose clears again.
38 - Dijks gets ahead of Zohore then hits the deck, winning a free-kick. Good defending from him.
39 - Jerome tripped by Gunnarsson during a neat City move. Free-kick to the Canaries. Hoolahan over it, 30 yards plus from goal.
40 - Hoolahan sends in. Jerome meets it and finds the corner with his head! 0-1!
41 - Not dissimilar to last week. Nothing game. Few chances. Taken one of them. City ahead.
42 - City throw on halfway. Final few minutes of the opening half.
43 - Corner to the Canaries now. Can they punish Cardiff again? The Bluebirds hadn't conceded from a set-piece under Neil Warnock until today...
44 - Cleared at the near-post. City start again.
44 - Howson unable to switch play. Out for a goal-kick.
45 - Jerome clipped. Free-kick given. A bit further back than where City scored from a few minutes ago.
45 - Cleared as far as Jerome who shoots on the bounce. Tipped wide for a corner.
45 - One minute to be added.
45 - Dealt with by Cardiff. Behind for a goal-kick.
HALF-TIME | Cardiff 0-1 City.
Not a classic first half but City on front. At this stage, that's all that matters.
More of the same needed in the second half. Battling qualities required.
@CityCanary: A few sparks, here and there. Only needs one moment to make a big difference.
Cardiff back out for the second half.
46 - Back underway. OTBC!
46 - Martin slides in to clear a cross from the left. City come forward.
46 - Unlucky from Jerome as he chases a ball towards the corner-flag, with it eventually sliding out for a goal-kick.
47 - Martin again with some timely defending, sliding in to block a shot with the ball going up in the air for Ruddy to catch.
48 - Pinto with a foul 10 yards inside Cardiff territory. Free-kick.
48 - Klose stoops to head away. Story of his day so far.
49 - Jerome booked for pushing his man over just inside the City half.
50 - Lofted in. Behind for a goal-kick.
51 - Howson in trouble now for a late tackle on halfway. Just a talking to.
52 - Bamba pumps in. Ruddy takes.
53 - Much like the first half so far. Not a great deal of quality.
54 - Behind for a Cardiff goal-kick.
