Cardiff held 0-0 by Villa to remain in drop zone

CARDIFF, Wales (AP) — Cardiff remains in the Premier League relegation zone after drawing 0-0 at home to Aston Villa on Tuesday.

Cardiff dominated the opening half and struck the woodwork through Fraizer Campbell and Craig Noone's deflected shot, but could not find the net. Villa offered no threat during the opening 45 minutes but could have taken all three points had Leandro Bacuna and Gabriel Agbonlahor shown better composure in front of goal.

Ultimately this was a game Cardiff needed to win, and one Villa was happy enough to avoid losing. Villa climbed five points clear of the drop zone, but Cardiff remains 19th with just two wins from its last 17 league games.
