Marshall ready for battle

Cardiff goalkeeper David Marshall insists his side's draw with Stoke on Saturday has given the club renewed hope of Premier League survival.

After going behind to a hotly-disputed penalty at the Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff had to dig deep against Stoke to salvage a point.

Marshall knows that wins rather than draws are needed if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is to keep his side up, but believes his team-mates can rally and produce a great escape.

"We need to win our home games, but after going 1-0 down, I think it's a point gained," Marshall is quoted in The Sun.

"We showed a lot of battle and a lot of quality in the second half.

"We're on 30 points at the minute, so we can definitely do it."

Marshall has impressed despite Cardiff's lowly position this season.

The 29-year-old Scot has made the most saves in the Premier League, and is fully aware his form must continue to ensure his side have the best chance of staying up.

"I am happy to be making the saves," Marshall added.

"I'm going to have to do that until the end of the season because there will be games that we will have to chase."
