Cardiff City were forced to settle for a point on Tuesday evening, as they drew 1-1 with promotion-chasing Brentford.
The Bluebirds took the lead in the second-half, as Kieffer Moore scored his second penalty in as many matches, after Sid Nelson’s header was handled by a Brentford player.
But that lead was short-lived as Tarique Fosu-Henry’s effort from distance managed to beat Alex Smithies in the Cardiff goal, with it being a strike that the Cardiff goalkeeper won’t want to see again, as the initial effort was straight at him.
Cardiff held on to earn a point from the game though, and will be hoping they can finish this year’s campaign strongly, with the play-offs now officially out of their reach.
Are these facts about Cardiff City's shirts from over the years genuine or fake?
Plenty of Cardiff City supporters took to social media to voice their frustrations at Smithies’ role in Brentford’s equaliser, with a number of fans calling for him to be dropped from the starting XI.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
Phillips conceded 5, none of which was his fault at Sheffield Wednesday and was dropped, but Smithies has had constant nightmares since coming back in and is still starting?
