The Cardiff City Stadium served up a very dull goalless draw between Cardiff and Everton, with this being two goalless draws in a row for the Toffees, and no win under new manager Roberto Martinez as yet.
Chances were few and far between it the first half, with Cardiff having a couple of half chances, Caulker and Whittingham going close from corners.
Mirallas failed to convert some headers, and Jelavic went close with a header that deflected and almost wrong-footed Cardiff goalkeeper David Marshall.
Barkley was a constant threat again on worried the Cardiff defence.
Gary Medel seemed to foul Leighton Baines in the box, and it seemed a clear penalty for Everton, but the referee waved away the claim.
The second-half was again dominated by Everton, but Cardiff went close, when Bellamy went through on goal but his touch around Tim Howard was to heavy.
Jelavic went through in the box but his effort with the outside of his right foot blazed over.
Mirallas also went through, but checked in on his right foot, but he was closed down.
Baines had a right footed shot from 30 yards go narrowly wide and Deulofeu whipped a ball across the box, but nobody could get a foot in to tap it into the open goal.
A good result for Cardiff but a worrying result for Everton. They are clearly missing a prolific striker, and the midfielders don't seem to be chipping in with a goal or two either.
Martinez has got some work to do in the transfer market, with a striker needed.
The only positives is that it's two clean sheets, Ross Barkley is blossoming and can only get better and better, and Everton still remain unbeaten.
