Former Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo missed a second-half penalty on his full Huddersfield debut as the Terriers were held to a goalless draw by high-flying Cardiff.

The pre-match talk had been all about Mick McCarthy’s 1,000th game in football management, but it was the hosts who dominated the ball in the first half and they went close to the opener inside 15 minutes when Juninho Bacuna’s free-kick was well saved by Dillon Phillips.

The second half was an altogether scrappier affair, though again it was Huddersfield who passed up another glorious chance to win the game when Aaron Rowe won a penalty and Sanogo struck his spot-kick the wrong side of the left-hand post (74).

A point was enough to extend McCarthy’s unbeaten start as Cardiff boss to 11 games and lift the Bluebirds to seventh, one point behind sixth-placed Bournemouth, while Carlos Corberan’s men climb to 18th, six points off the bottom three with 11 games to play
