  • There was a moment of magic in the end, but it was to keep things goalless rather than provide a winner. Miracle save from Marshall to deny Weimann at the last but a draw probably a fair result, if not a particularly useful one for either side.

  • What a save! Weimann looks sure to win the game for Villa but Marshall somehow flicks out a hand to keep the point-blank effort out of the goal. Then makes a far easier save from the corner.

  • Chance! Bertrand fizzes a lethal low cross across the Cardiff six-yard box but Agbonlahor can't quite get a touch on it. Just two added minutes to play here.

  • Bertrand crosses from the left. Turner, for the umpteenth time, heads clear.

  • Into the last minute.

  • Noone gets his head to a cross, but can't direct his effort goalwards. Cardiff had the better of the first half, Villa the better of the second. Neither able to produce that one moment of quality that could've bagged all three points.

  • Noone fare quieter in this second half but does well here to get a cross in that just evades Jones at the back post. The ball is worked back to John, who cuts on to his right foot to shoot from 30 yards but never threatens the target.

  • Corner falls to Benteke who tees up Albrighton on the edge of the box. He usually strikes the ball well, but this time miscues horribly and the ball goes out for a goal-kick.

  • Theophile concedes a corner.

  • Weimann beats the offside trap and looks to square the ball for Benteke, but Turner again gets a foot in and Marshall gathers. Villa looking the likelier to pinch a late winner, though.

  • Turner does well to hook a cross over his left shoulder but the ball bounces off Caulker and into the arms of Guzan as Jones lurks.

  • Best chance of the game. Brilliant flick from Benteke puts Agbonlahor clean through on goal, but he takes an age over getting his shot away and allows Theophile to get back and deny him.

  • Good ball in from Albrighton on the right but Weimann, arriving late at the back post, can't quite get there.

  • Albrighton looks long for Benteke, but Caulker gets his head to it. All four centre-backs have been immense in the air tonight.

  • Corner half-cleared to Vlaar who hooks the ball goalwards but over the bar.

  • Great save! Villa work the ball nicely to give Delph a shooting chance from 25 yards. He strikes it well, and a deflection off Caulker makes life tougher still for Marshall who is nonetheless able to get a strong left hand to the ball and turn it behind for a corner.

  • Corner finds Caulker at the back post. He heads down into the ground without much power. Guzan gathers easily.

  • Free-kick aimed towards Campbell and Turner at the back post. Vlaar beats both of them to it. Corner.

  • Noone tripped by Bertrand. Free-kick to Cardiff wide on the right.

  • Loads of space for Weimann out on the left, but Benteke can't find him. Theophile with the interception.
