Cardiff 0 - 0 Aston Villa: Point made as Solskjaer hails keeper Marshall

Cardiff boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was happy with the point his side earned from the 0-0 draw with Aston Villa, praising a stunning save by David Marshall.

The City keeper lit up a dour Barclays Premier League game with a brilliant injury-time stop to deny Andreas Weimann and earn the relegation battlers a point.

"I thought it was a goal, but you have David Marshall there," said Manchester United legend Solskjaer, whose team remain in the relegation zone.

"You expect him to save it. He's been fantastic all season," he added.

Solskjaer said his side had been up against quality opposition.

"I take the positives as Villa are one of the best away teams in the league," he said.

Goalkeeper Marshall paid tribute to the visitors.

"Hopefully it's not a bad point – Villa are a good team going forward and cause a lot of problems," he said.

"We've had four points from our last two home games and the next is at home (to Hull on Saturday week), so we could get seven which would not be bad.

"In the position we're in, it's touch and go. We could have been three up in the first half, but it's fine margins."
