Lee Peltier hopes Neil Warnock will stay on as manager after relegated Cardiff went out with a bang by beating Manchester United. Last weekend’s home loss to Crystal Palace sealed the Bluebirds’ fate with a match to spare, meaning Sunday’s trip to face Manchester United at Old Trafford was merely the chance to make a memorable farewell to the Premier League.

Few expected anything other than a home win, but Cardiff dug deep to secure their first victory against United since 1960 as goals from Nathaniel Mendez-Laing either side of half-time earned a 2-0 triumph. Warnock’s name was chanted by the raucous visiting fans from the outset and full-back Peltier wants him to remain in charge next season to spearhead a promotion charge.
“The gaffer has been fantastic,” Peltier said. “He has done everything he can. “He has rallied the troops all season. We’ve just come up that little bit short. “That little bit more quality at times and I thought we would have been alright.”
