Vine: Cardiff’s David Marshall pulls off one of the saves of the season against Aston Villa

And in the dying moments of the game too. How crucial could this be come the end of the season?

Cardiff aren’t exactly in great shape in the Premier League at the moment but they would have been worse off had their keeper David Marshall not pulled off a cracking save to deny Andreas Weimann in the last minute of a 0-0 draw with Aston Villa this evening.

Observers often tend to over-react in the immediate aftermath of incidents like this but it is being described as the save of the season so far, and considering how close Weimann was to the goal and the instant nature of Marshall’s reactions, we’d be inclined to agree.

Would the members of the goalkeeper’s union agree? Feel free to let us know in the comment box below.
