Neil Warnock feels his side can have a “free hit” against Liverpool on Sunday as nobody expects them to overcome the title contenders.
A 2-0 victory over Brighton on Tuesday night has given the Bluebirds hope they might just be able to avoid the drop straight back down to the Championship, moving to within two points of safety thanks to the triumph on the south coast.
With Warnock not expecting goal difference to be a factor in Cardiff surviving this term, the experienced manager feels his side can have a good crack at the Premier League frontrunners this weekend. “I think (Liverpool) is a free hit really. We’re not going to stay up on goal difference are we?” said Warnock.
“Liverpool can score five or six against teams like us. They’ve got so many quality players. “But I think it’s a game that with our crowd and a full house, we can give it a good go. “Every game we have to play like it’s our last, and give it our best shot.”
