Joe Mason scores the only goal of the half as Cardiff City take a 1-0 lead into the break of their home encounter with Leeds United.

Cardiff City's quest to secure a place in the Championship play-offs this afternoon is currently on course courtesy of a solo strike from Joe Mason.

Both sides struggled to create goalscoring chances at the Cardiff City Stadium, with neither goalkeeper called into any meaningful action during the early moments.

The best chance of the opening exchanges fell to Cardiff striker Kenny Miller, but he saw his shot from 18 yards out blocked by Alex Bruce.

Mason's goalscoring intervention arrived in the 42nd minute when he turned in a cross from Peter Whittingham inside the six-yard box.

Three points for Malky Mackay's Cardiff will seal them a spot in the top six of the division.
