David Marshall made one brilliant save after another and kept Cardiff City in the game, but a late Everton goal would spoil the day for the Bluebirds in a 2-1 loss.
Everton were absolutely assaulting the Cardiff goal during the first half, but Marshall made three superb saves and positioned himself well to frustrate the Toffees. Everton finally broke through in the 59th minute, but Cardiff would equalize 10 minutes later as Peter Whittingham would send a free kick into the area, and Juan Cala was able to deflect it in off of his thigh for his first ever Premier League goal. It was a very unfortunate outcome from a side that fought hard, but it is magnified even more by the fact that every other club in the bottom five of the table picked up points today.

Cardiff City's defending left little to be desired, leaving plenty of space for Hull City to run all over them, as they drop all the points in a game they desperately needed points from.

Fantasy managers who looked to David Marshall as a potential budget option at keeper were slapped with a -10 score, but there was little Marshall could do about the shoddy defending in front of him. The absence of Gary Medel was felt, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer put his confidence back in Fabio by starting him, which looked to be a mistake, as the Brazilian and Andrew Taylor were consistently burned on the flanks. Cardiff host Fulham two weeks from now, a nice matchup in a gameweek with eight clubs not playing, but it will be difficult to feel confident about getting any returns from their players after seeing this performance.

David Marshall made several jaw-dropping saves to keep Aston Villa off the score sheet, and his heroic efforts resulted in a point for Cardiff City as they played to a goalless draw.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer switched out each of his fullbacks and their defense responded with their first clean sheet since mid December. It was Marshall that made it happen though, with six big saves, including one off a Fabian Delph laser, and another robbing Andreas Weimann from point blank range. Cardiff host Hull City next, so their normally inexpensive defensive options could make for a nice spot start.

David Marshall came up with seven important saves as Cardiff were holding on to a 2-0 lead but conceded two goals at the end of the game.

Marshall was impressive and would have finished with 24 fantasy points if Sunderland didn't score the two late goals. The second goal was very unlucky for Marshall as the ball was deflected from one of his defenders and there was nothing the keeper could do. Cardiff's poor defense prevents Marshall from being a top fantasy goalkeeper even in favorable match ups.

Cardiff City managed to secure a point on the road, playing to a 0-0 draw against Norwich City at Carrow Road.

David Marshall was the hero of the day, making one exceptional save after another, which should make for a monster fantasy haul. Currently listed as having 10 saves along with the clean sheet, he should be climbing the keeper ranks this weekend. Currently priced at 5.16m, he could come into consideration given a good matchup.

Cardiff City, eager to harden their defense in front of David Marshall and give impetus to their attack, are chasing Southampton target Victor Wanyama.

Rumor has it that the Saints negotiations with the Celtic star have stalled over personal terms and Cardiff are looking to step in and steal the player from the south coast team. This would be a great statement of intent from Cardiff who featured one of the better defenses in the Championship last season and this move would certainly help continue that trend into the Premier League. By shielding the back four with a player linked to Manchester United and Arsenal at various times Cardiff's chances of staying up would improve significantly.
