Result: Stoke City, Cardiff City share the spoils

Stoke City and Cardiff City play out a goalless draw in the Premier League.

Stoke City and Cardiff City have played out a goalless draw at the Britannia Stadium in the Premier League.

Ryan Shawcross had a good chance to give the Potters the lead in the 19th minute when he rose highest to a Charlie Adam cross, but failed to get it on target.

Oussama Assaidi latched onto Marko Arnautovic's pass just before the half-hour mark but failed to get the better of David Marshall, who then kept out an effort from Peter Crouch.

The Potters thought that they had broken the deadlock on the stroke of half time when Geoff Cameron turned in Crouch's flick-on from close range, but it was ruled out for an offside infringement.

Fraizer Campbell could have put Cardiff in the lead just three minutes into the second half when he connected with Peter Whittingham's cross, but his poked effort went just wide of the target.

The Welsh outfit created another chance on the hour mark when Whittingham failed to hit the target with his volley, before Campbell failed to control the ball at a crucial moment.

The hosts stepped up their game in the final stages of the contest, but failed to find a winner.
