Half-Time Report: Bryan Ruiz pulls Fulham level at the break

Fulham equalise just before half time against Cardiff City in the Premier League.

Fulham and Cardiff City are drawing at the break in their Premier League clash.

Darren Bent broke forward early but his low cross was too close to David Marshall.

Dimitar Berbatov then sent a ball over the top of the Cardiff defence, and after some confusion, Andrew Taylor was able to clear.

However, Martin Jol's team fell behind after 12 minutes. Peter Whittingham whipped in a cross and former Tottenham Hotspur defender Steven Caulker was there to head home.

A further chance fell the Bluebirds' way when Taylor headed towards goal, but Steve Sidwell was able to prevent it crossing the line.

Whittingham then sent in another free kick that picked out Ben Turner. However, Turner's header was well saved by David Stockdale.

Aron Gunnarsson was next to threaten for the visitors with a header that rolled wide. Again Whittingham was the architect.

However, Fulham equalised just before the break through Bryan Ruiz's chipped shot.
