Robert Glatzel scored his first goal for Cardiff as the Bluebirds hit back to hold Derby in a 1-1 draw at Pride Park on Friday evening.
Scott Malone landed an early blow when he tapped home Martyn Waghorn’s pass (6), but Glatzel scored his first goal since a summer move from FC Heidenheim from the penalty spot (19) to level the Sky Bet Championship match at the break.
Two minutes after the restart, Jack Marriott swivelled 20 yards out and crashed a shot off the crossbar, while Glatzel might have added a second with a late header but for Matt Clarke’s last-ditch clearance.
An open game meant a draw was, arguably, a fair result, though the Rams remain without a home win under Phillip Cocu, leaving them 18th in the table, while Cardiff are yet to win on the road this term.
More to follow…
Cardiff host Middlesbrough next Saturday at 3pm, while Derby travel to Elland Road earlier in the day to face Leeds in a repeat of last season’s play-off semi-final. That game is live on Sky Sports Football, with kick-off at 12.30pm.
