Substitute Kim Bo-Kyung scored a stoppage time equaliser to earn Cardiff City a deserved point against Manchester United in the Welsh capital yesterday afternoon.
Wayne Rooney put the champions in front on fifteen minutes, scoring with a deflected shot soon after escaping a red card for a poor challenge on Jordon Mutch.
Former United striker Fraizer Campbell drew the hosts’ level on thirty-three minutes before Patrice Evra restored the visitors’ lead on the stroke of half time.
Then the Bluebirds’, who pretty much matched their opponents in terms of possession and shots on goal, were rewarded for their efforts after Kim headed in from Peter Whittingham’s cross.
David Moyes’ men now sit in sixth place, a point behind neighbours Manchester City in fourth and seven behind leaders Arsenal ahead of next Sunday’s trip to White Hart Lane where they will face a Tottenham Hotspur side who were thumped 6-0 at the Etihad Stadium in yesterday’s early kick-off.
They then hosts Moyes’ former club Everton, who are currently level on points with United following their thrilling 3-3 draw with rivals Liverpool.
United will however first turn their attention to Wednesday evening’s trip to Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League, where they can seal qualification for the knockout stages with victory.
