Bluebirds look to make new additions

Cardiff manager Dave Jones expects a flurry of transfer activity in the coming days after his threadbare squad were held to a 1-1 draw by Sheffield United.

A transfer embargo at the club was only lifted on Friday and Jones was able to name just four substitutes against the Blades. Ched Evans put Kevin Blackwell's side ahead before Cardiff levelled through Jay Bothroyd

"Now the transfer embargo has been lifted I have spoken to the Malaysian owners who assure me that they are in for the long haul and recognise that players need to come into the club," said Jones.

"I took a gamble by letting players go and waited for the club to be out of the embargo and I will be disappointed if another two players are not here in the next few days.

"I think we deserved more than a point as we dominated the second half but couldn't break them down.

"Two or three games into the season we would have been a bit sharper and perhaps opened them up, but I said the players were up for it, and they were.

Sheffield United boss Kevin Blackwell was pleased to come away with a point and had no complaints about Matthew Lowton's dismissal for a rash challenge on Kevin McNaughton.

He said: "Considering we played for so long with 10 men, I have to be satisfied with the result.

"We started off well and are very pleased with the point because Cardiff needed the extra man to get back into the game.

"Cardiff showed good spirit and to leave here with a point is really pleasing."
