Cardiff City made it three draws in a row as they came from behind to take a point at Derby County last night.
Neil Warnock’s side fell behind after a goal from former player Scott Malone, however they were level by the 19th minute, with summer signing Robert Glatzel getting off the mark for his new club.

The German was signed for a fee of around £5.5m and he was expected to be the man to help fire the Bluebirds to promotion.
However, he has endured a slow start to life in the Championship. The 25-year-old had failed to score in his opening five games before last night’s trip to the east Midlands.
Despite that, he impressed against the Rams, with his movement and ability to lead the line and he was rewarded with a goal that came from a penalty that he had won.
He took it very confidently and almost sealed the points in the second half but his brave header was hooked off the line.
So, there were encouraging signs for the Cardiff fans and here’s how they reacted to Glatzel’s performance…
Big goal for Robert Glatzel his first goal for Cardiff, excellent penalty , he’s finally off the mark. That will give him confidence now he’s up and running he could go on a good run he is very hard to deal with and makes good runs but just wasn’t clinical enough #CCFC.
