Half-Time Report: Cardiff City, Liverpool share four goals in first half

A late Martin Skrtel goal at the end of the first half ensures that Liverpool are level against Cardiff City in the Premier League.

A late Martin Skrtel goal at the end of the first half has ensured that Liverpool are level against Cardiff City in their Premier League clash at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The hosts started well, with Fraizer Campbell pushing on before being fouled by Steven Gerrard. Kevin Theopile-Catherine also fired over the crossbar after Campbell had directed a deep corner back into the box.

The home side soon had the lead, however. Sloppy play from Liverpool gave the ball to Campbell, who then passed it to Jordon Mutch on the edge of the area. Gerrard tried to block his route to goal, but the Cardiff midfielder drilled a low shot beyond Simon Mignolet.

The away side struggled to find a response, but stunned their opponents with a goal out of nothing. Jordan Henderson played in Glen Johnson and, after the defender assessed his options, he picked out Luis Suarez, who then rolled in his 26th goal of the season.

The Bluebirds restored their advantage when Campbell, having jinked past Daniel Agger and John Flanagan, curled the ball beyond the dive of Mignolet.

Liverpool equalised for a second time when Skrtel showed determination to prod the ball in from close range.
