FULL TIME. That's it, Cardiff seal a valuable three points thanks to Mutch's late effort. Thanks for your views today, stay with us for reaction.
GOAL - MUTCH!!!!!! Mutch wins it for Cardiff with a fantastic strike!!! The goal comes from the free-kick. Marshall floats it upto Mutch on the edge of the Fulham box. It bounces off Richardson into his path and he slots home with a sublime left-footed effort into the top corner!!!
Taarabt is on for Bent as Fulham go for the win.
Bellamy is on for Odemwingie for Cardiff.
Maynard is on for Campbell for Cardiff.
Berbatov is booked for a late challenge on T-C midway in the Cardiff half.
Mutch is on for Kim.
Paul says: 'No imagination or creativity in this Fulham team this season. I'm hoping a 2-1 win, but honestly , if the first half is like the second, Cardiff will win.' Cheers for your views, the teams are back on the pitch, hold onto your hats folks!!
Adam - Cardiff City fan says: 'We (Cardiff) look strong so far, especially in the air, if it carries on like this we will pick up the 3 points. Should easily be out of sight already though, a contentiously disallowed goal and hitting the post, we will pull through this. Fulham need to improve dramatically on this showing if they would like to be a premier league team next season.'
Alan has been back in touch to say: 'We're still on for our prediction Steve but to be fair we shouldn't be. Hopefully Ruiz can inspire us to a much better second 45 and maybe win? But I would happily accept a point judging by the first 45 !!!' You never know- you surely cannot be as poor as that in the second period and I think you'll push on to win.
HALF TIME. Fulham go in level at the break after a great strike by Ruiz. In reality though, Cardiff will be kicking themselves for not being out of sight already. Jol will be demanding a massive improvement after the break. What are your views / predictions for the second period? Send them to email@example.com and I will post up the best when I get back with my brew!
GOAL - RUIZ!!!!!! Ruiz scores a fantastic left-footed finish into the top corner from the edge of the box following a pass by Riether to bring Fulham level!!!
Ruiz is on for Kacaniklic as Jol tries to stop Fulham being over run here.
Cardiff take the free-kick and T-C is booked for a challenge on Kacaniklic. It is a Fulham free-kick midway in the Cardiff half.
GOAL - CAULKER!!!!!!! Whittingham takes the corner and Caulker gets away from his marker and rises unmarked to head home from eight yards in the centre.
Parker is injured - not from any tackle - and Karagounis is going to come on.
Alan says: 'Before the West Brom game a couple of weeks ago I said at home we need to get 3 points . . . But not starting well we haven't played to our best and only got the draw I predicted. I was told I should keep the faith instead of being realistic. Once again I cannot see a win despite on paper it should be. 1-1 and a relegation battle for the Fulham boys this season I think.' Great minds think alike Alan, I've gone for 1-1 too!
FIRST VIEW - Peter has been in touch to say: 'Fulham have still not recovered from losing Dembele to Spurs more than a year ago. He was in a different class to the other players. He held the team together, linking defence to midfield and forwards. Thanks to him a very average team looked pretty decent. Now he's gone we can no longer hide just how average we really are.' Cheers for that Peter, Dembele has shown his worth to Spurs today. My own opinion is I thought you would struggle last season after losing the spine of your team with Murphy, Zamora etc going but you did fine, there's a lot of experience in your squad but home games will be crucial.

My view - I reckon its going to be a stalemate here at Craven Cottage, with the spoils shared in a 1-1 draw. I'm going for Berbatov to score first, with the scorecast paying a handome 30/1 with Sky Bet if it comes in! What are your views / predictions? Send them to email@example.com
Fancy a bet? Sky Bet go 21/20 for a Fulham win, 12/5 for the draw and 5/2 for a Cardiff victory.
