The Bluebirds had to come from behind to rescue a point after they fell behind to a first-half Curtis Davis header.

Peter Whittingham completed a delightful Cardiff move to level proceedings and Mackay believes his side are displaying top-flight quality.

Mackay's men came away with a point, meaning their opening four Premier League fixtures have yielded five points, leaving them well poised in the middle of the table.

"It was probably a fair point for both sides," he said. "Both teams had their periods of dominance throughout the game and it ended all square.

"We both had chances other than the goals, a couple of weeks ago we scored a goal against Manchester City with 17 passes and today we scored one of the best goals since I came to the club two years ago.

"I think it was two teams that went hard at it and we are two teams who have made a comfortable start in this league. It probably was a fair result in the end."

The result comes just two weeks after Cardiff came from behind to produce a stunning 3-2 victory over Manchester City and Mackay hailed the talent displayed by his squad.

He added: "The character and resilience of the team is a positive, that's twice we have come from losing positions to get something.

"Losing David Marshall and Craig Bellamy to injury on international duty is disappointing but on the flip side having top quality international footballers, the fact is they have to play for their country.

"The strength and depth of people coming in and performing today really shows where we are at as a club."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
