BLUES Boss Jim Magilton admitted he was clueless as to why his side failed once again to perform away from home.
Town slumped to their 13th away match without a win in a below par display at Ninian Park.
Although Alan Lee hit the woodwork inside 20 seconds and Tommy Miller had a shot cleared off the line by City's match-winner Paul Parry, they showed very little else.
Magilton said: “It is very disappointing not winning away after doing so well at home. I don't why it should be, you sit here and I will ask you because I have no idea.

“We have an away team and a home team and there will be changes in the next away game.”
Town had a good early chance from Lee before Parry scored in the 33rd minute and Magilton said: “If that had gone in then it might have been different.”
“Cardiff showed more desire to get a result. The second half was different as we were chasing it. We put them under more pressure but we still didn't really create a clear cut chance.”
Magilton refused to blame the international break for the lack-lustre display and added: “I'm not making any excuses.”
Under fire City boss Dave Jones said: “Sometimes winning ugly is not a bad thing. We played some fantastic stuff in the first half. It doesn't take a genius to work out if we kept a clean sheet after that then we would go on and win.
“Paul Parry was in the right place and took his goal well.”
The one bright spot from the game was Gavin Williams who played all 90 minutes after not being involved at all this season due to injury.
