Last updated: Sunday, 09 January, 2022, 15:26

North End continue to struggle to retain possession and the homse side have the chance to cross.

The delivery is poor and doesn’t beat the first man.

Davies carries the ball inside from the left wing and lets fly low towards the centre of the net and it comes off the inside of Iversen’s heel and in.

One more minute added on

There will be one more minute played at the end of the first half.

Half Time: Cardiff City 1-0 PNE

Cardiff take a slender lead into the break thanks to a good run and strike from Isaak Davies.

North End have not been at it in the opening 45 and have failed to retain possesion much or create a chance.

Isaak Davies put the hosts into the lead just before interval, van den Berg failing to cut out a pass before the forward went past Bauer with ease and his shot into the middle of the goal beat Iversen.

The second half is underway!

Ledson plays a good ball into the area for Maguire who uses his body cleverly to shield the ball as Morrison slid in and brought him down!

Daniel Johnson does what Daniel Johnson does and he confidently steps up to slot the ball into the bottom corner!

Emil Riis is replaced by Scott Sinclair.

Parry Ng is booked for a blatant push in the back of Ali McCann as he attacked the Cardiff box.

Brown is replaced by Mark Harris.
