Numbers game: Cardiff City (A)

We break down the statistics from City's Sky Bet Championship 1-0 Severnside derby win.

Chris Martin tucked home from Antoine Semenyo’s cutback inside the second minute, with the vital goal enough to earn City the win in South Wales.

Dan Bentley was in fine form to keep the Bluebirds at bay as the hosts lacked quality in the final third, and while it wasn’t all fireworks in the Robins attack either, Dean Holden’s men would show their resilience to see out the victory.

The 1-0 win sees City leap to second in the Sky Bet Championship table ahead of the weekend’s remaining fixtures.
