We felt hard done by says Ole.

CARDIFF .......1 STOKE ........... 1 CARDIFF manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed a contentious first-half penalty for Stoke galvanised his players into the recovery act that could help secure Premier League survival.

Peter Whittingham's 50th-minute spot-kick cancelled out a Marko Arnautovic strike - the first penalty Cardiff have conceded this season - that was converted during the dying seconds of an opening 45 minutes the hosts shaded with regards to possession and territory.

It appeared to be a harsh decision by referee Howard Webb, who punished Kim for his challenge on former Cardiff player Peter Odemwingie, while the Bluebirds also saw a later Juan Cala effort ruled out for offside.

"I felt what I felt at the time, that it was not a penalty, but I accept that Howard has got to make a decision there and then," Solskjaer said.

"For us, it galvanised everyone in the dressing room.

"We felt hard done by."
