Half-Time Report: Southampton, Cardiff City goalless at the break

Southampton are being held to a goalless draw with Cardiff City at half time in the Premier League.

Southampton are being held to a goalless draw at half time against Cardiff City at St Mary's Stadium.

Jordon Mutch wasted a good opening for the Welsh side early on when he failed to connect with the ball when swinging his foot at it inside the box nine minutes in.

The Saints fashioned a number of chances within the first half hour, and Steve Davis had a decent opening on 15 minutes before Adam Lallana, who has been lively throughout, found Gaston Ramirez, who hit the bar with a deflected effort.

David Marshall and Steven Caulker were involved in a mix-up on 18 minutes, but the goalkeeper eventually scrambled the ball
away before saving Lallana's shot on the edge of the box.

Southampton were asking for penalty when Caulker leaned into Luke Shaw, but the referee waved away the appeals five minutes from half time.
