Cardiff 0-0 Arsenal – FA Cup – Highlights

Cardiff put on a superb performance to hold Arsenal to a goalless draw in their FA Cup fourth round tie.

The Bluebirds dominated the early stages but wasted good chances, with Ross McCormack, Joe Ledley and Paul Parry all failing to hit the target.

Nicklas Bendtner wastefully headed over for Arsenal late in the first half.

Emmanuel Adebayor scuffed a great chance as Arsenal improved after the break, though McCormack did clip the Arsenal crossbar with a free-kick.

Cardiff were hanging on in the latter stages of the game but they fully deserved to take the tie to a replay.

Dave Jones’ team, beaten finalists last season, really took the game to Arsenal in the opening half, playing with a desire absent in their more illustrious opponents, and the high-flying Championship side should have taken at least one of their chances.

McCormack headed wide from 10 yards and Jay Bothroyd shot over from outside the box while Ledley failed to hit the target with a volley from seven yards after a precise cross from Parry.

An error from Bakary Sagna then gifted possession to Parry and the 28-year-old really should have tested Lukasz Fabianski in the Arsenal goal after breaking into the penalty area but he again shot over.
