The Match: Late blow

than a stern word for aiming a slap at Marouane Fellaini moments before Kim's equaliser.

Move of the match Though the move was started by Turner's errant pass and finished by a deflection, United's opening goal was neatly worked. Antonio Valencia's cross to Chicharito was pinpoint, but the Mexican's flick to tee up Rooney's finish was sublime.

Opposition Cardiff plugged away all afternoon, enjoying the greater chances in the first period and shutting down United's creative advances in an evenly-poised second period. Though they were ultimately indebted to wasteful finishing from the Reds in the late stages, Malky Mackay's side showed impressive resolve to pinch a point and extend their solid return to the top flight.

In the stands Predictably, a fervent atmosphere was generated by Cardiff's biggest gate of the season, which included 2,800 travelling Reds. The combative nature of the game ensured the volume was cranked up by both sets of supporters, though it was ultimately the home contingent who had the last laugh with their late leveller.
