BIRTHDAY BOY Marko Arnautovic secured his side a deserved share of the spoils from Saturday's Barclays Premier League encounter against struggling Cardiff City.
The Austrian international fired home his fourth goal for the Club from the penalty spot deep into first half stoppage time after former Bluebirds ace Peter Odemwingie was tripped inside the 18-yard box.
Peter Whittingham drew the hosts level with a spot-kick of his own five minutes after the interval, with referee Howard Webb adjudging Steven Nzonzi to have needlessly brought down Fraizer Campbell.
Jordan Mutch saw a header correctly chalked off for offside five minutes later, before substitute Oussama Assaidi presented himself with a glorious opportunity to have claimed all three points for his side in the dying stages.
