Rotherham Unted manager Steve Evans was left frustrated after only taking a point from their Championship trip to Cardiff City.
Substitute Federico Macheda went closest for the hosts before David Marshall tipped Alex Revell’s header onto the crossbar to extend Rotherham’s sorry run to eight league matches without a win.
They have not won away from home since they beat Millwall back in August and they hover two points above the relegation zone, as Cardiff slip down to ninth.
Evans said: “We did more than work hard. We played some super football, our passing and moving was exceptional.
“This is a big football club with great traditions who have just dropped down from the Premier League but I think we out-worked them and out-passed them and out-moved them today.
“We go away on the coach disappointed that we haven’t come away with a victory because the performance and the chances we created deserved that.”
