Neither Cardiff or Charlton have registered a shot on target in south Wales with half-hour left to play . Stoke travel to Wigan tonight in what is a massive game. They head into it a point above the relegation zone, while Wigan could not be in better form, having won five of their past six matches, as

Here is how the Cardiff City players rated against Charlton Athletic

Alex Smithies 7

Untroubled in the first half and calm with the ball at his feet.

Dion Sanderson 7

Still can look a little frazzled with the ball under his feet under pressure, but the space he affords his team-mates with his bombing runs continues to be a vital asset.

Sean Morrison 7

Solid and dependable. Made one brilliant sliding tackle to stymie a dangerous Charlton attack in the first half.

Neil Harris' high praise for Cardiff City goalscorer Robert Glatzel as selection dilemma looms ahead of Charlton clash

  Neil Harris' high praise for Cardiff City goalscorer Robert Glatzel as selection dilemma looms ahead of Charlton clash The German striker found the back of the net for the second time in as many weeks as the Bluebirds registered a tremendous 3-1 win over Preston . Glatzel netted his seventh goal of the season on Saturday afternoon and now appears to have fully adjusted to the rigmarole of the Championship. His wonder strike against Leeds United last weekend certainly caught the eye and another coolly taken finish to score his side's third goal against the Lilywhites has Bluebirds fans calling for him to play from the off in City's next fixture.

Country’s brave defenders . A truly international place. A. Moscow has always been a multicultural city . If we look back at its history, we will see that there were several foreign communities So as long as the writers of the show keep coming up with new planets for the Doctor and his companion to visit

Cardiff City ended their goal drought with a 2-0 win against Reading. Kenwyne Jones became the first Cardiff player to score since 3 October as he headed them in front before half-time. "And Mark Pilkington I think put in a strong performance and a strong performance from too from Craig Noone.

Curtis Nelson 9 (star man)

Made an incredible block on Andre Green in the first half and was peerless in the air for the entire evening. Made a goal-saving block on Jake Forster-Caskey, too. A big performance from him.

Joe Bennett 8

About as good a Joe Bennett performance as we have seen for some time. Charlton didn't look like creating down his flank and his partnership with Mendez-Laing was bright and will be encouraging moving forward.

Marlon Pack 7

Reintroduced into the side and swept up well at the base of midfield. Josh Cullen was a tricky customer but Pack was always aware of his presence and sought to shut him down.

Leandro Bacuna 7

Continues to win over his detractors. Covers so much ground, is so quick and so effective at both ends of the pitch. Another very solid outing.

  'Nottingham Forest don't come out of this looking great' - Cardiff City boss reveals what he would have done on Albert Adomah The winger has played his final game for the Bluebirds after being recalled by Nottingham ForestThe Bluebirds manager has hit out at the EFL for their handling of the situation, claiming they should have taken ownership over extending players' loans, and also questioned the integrity of Forest for recalling their player in the knowledge he cannot play for the remainder of the season.

Charlton boss Lee Bowyer was pleased with his team's "professional" away performance after a I thought it was a really professional away performance . I thought they didn’t really cause us many Igor today I thought was very good. His workrate against two defenders . It starts from the front when

Kal Naismith's first goal was a close-range effort, but he found the net again with a spectacular long-range strike shortly afterwards. Kal Naismith scored twice as Wigan Athletic extended their unbeaten run to nine games with a comfortable win over relegation-threatened Stoke City .

Joe Ralls 8

Really growing into this playmaker role in Lee Tomlin's stead. Crisp passing and found himself popping up in the box frequently. Another very good performance from him.

Albert Adomah 6

A frustrating final performance for the winger. Whipped in one dangerous cross but just didn't quite click for him as it has done so often in a Bluebirds shirt.

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing 8

He deserved this starting spot and, boy, did he show us. Powerful, pacy, direct with his runs, he looked so hungry for it. The only thing missing was a goal.

Robert Glatzel 6

Some nice hold-up play, but, in truth, struggled really to get in the game before he was hooked just before half time after suffering a nasty head injury.


Callum Paterson (on for Glatzel 45) 6

Very few clear-cut opportunities for him to impress himself on the game. As combative as ever but just didn't get the chances.

Lee Tomlin (on for Bacuna 65) 7

Certainly added a verve to the City attack. His clever passes opened up the defence on more than one occasion.

Junior Hoilett (on for Mendez-Laing 65) 6

Just not his night. Missed a golden opportunity to put City ahead and misplaced a couple of passes as Cardiff tried to force the issue.
