Saw very little of the action in the first half but had to be alert to deny Holtby after the break. Helpless for the goal after Hangeland's near post flick-on, but denied Mitroglou well.
In the right place at the right time to finish into an empty net at the end of the first half, before heading his side back in front in the second half.
Rarely troubled by Mitrglou or the inexperienced Woodrow, who saw little service in the middle. Came off for Theophile-Catherine towards the end.
Equal to the minimal threat from Fulham's wide men on the right.
Looked like he might be in for a busy afternoon with Riise and Richardson early on, but was rarely taken on by either player.
Looked to drive infield from the right hand side and provided assists for both Caulker and the own goal, and should have seen Jones convert another decent cross. A fine display from the promising winger.
Tried to drive his side on in the first half. Frustrated at times but put in a decent performance.
A sturdy performance from the no-nonsense midfielder, who helped his side to victory before coming off for Eikrem.
Sent in a superb corner to find Caulker for Cardiff's second of the afternoon and forced the third with a headed effort which eventually went in off Riether.
Forced a save out of Stekelenburg with a curling effort and put doubts in the minds of the Fulham back four before coming off for Daehli.
Thundered an effort at goal which Stekelenburg kept out, but might have done better. Definitely should have hit the target shortly after the interval but headed wide.
Went down early and got caught underneath Caulker's bouncing header for Cardiff's second goal. Would have found the third hard to swallow after making a smart save. Could do little about the opener and had made two decent saves from Campbell and Jones.
Replaced at half time for Kacaniklic with his side needing a goal, having contributed little.
Unfortunate to see a Stekelenburg save rebound off him and into the net for Cardiff's third.
Helped Karagounis's corner on its way to Holtby for Fulham's equaliser but was not equal to the aerial threat of Cardiff defensively.
Looked to slow to handle the pace of the likes of Mutch and Noone, who ran at the Fulham back four.
Tried to link up with Riise and Kacanaklic but could not threaten on the left.
Hit the side netting early on, but was brought off early in the second half for Karagounis after an uneventful first half.
Couldn't thread the killer pass in the first half but was on hand to help a Heitinga header beyond Marshall.
Far from a dominant presence as his side lost the midfield battle.
Thrown in at the deep end for his first appearance for Fulham with his side in desperate need of points. Replaced by Bent.
Headed a difficult chance wide in the first half and saw a volley saved by Marshall, but otherwise barely got a sniff on his full debut.
