McLeish's View: Cardiff City (h)

Last updated : 17 January 2009 By Brian Cartlidge

Joe Ledley had given the visitors a 1-0 lead just after the hour mark but debutant Lee Bowyer earned Blues a 1-1 draw with virtually the last kick of the match at St Andrews on Saturday afternoon.

"I'm sure Cardiff will think it's tough on them but we threw everything at them at the end," the Blues boss said after the game.

"We risked losing another goal to get an equaliser and it paid off.

"I'm pleased for Lee, I'm delighted for him. He showed he's still got the legs and he's still got the energy. He found that wee bit extra to get in the box and find that equaliser at a crucial time for us.

"I thought we started really well and for 20 minutes or so we dominated.

"Cardiff then had a wee spell but I don't think either goal was really threatened.

"Second half, we never really got started, we huffed and puffed but Cardiff definitely dominated proceedings."
