Cardiff boss Neil Warnock believes they could need 10 points from the last six games to have a chance of staying up.
Cardiff’s troubles deepen following a 2-0 defeat at Manchester City last night and their next two matches – away to relegation rivals Burnley and Brighton on April 13 and 16 respectively – could be make or break as they remain 18th in the table.
Warnock had threatened to field his under-23 side against City after lashing out at the officials following their 2-1 home defeat to Chelsea at the weekend, but said he was proud of his side’s response.
“To concede a goal as early as that, you fear the worst,” he said. “They started the game like the Real Madrid of 10 years ago, they were so quick and comfortable on the ball.

“The disappointment of the Chelsea game could have knocked teams, but they came to see me on Monday after I said about the under-23s and said, ‘Gaffer, I want to play in this game’ and that’s what you want to see.”
Cardiff sit five points adrift of safety, albeit with a game in hand on those around them, and Warnock admitted the scale of the challenge with Liverpool and Manchester United still on the fixture list. “I think we have to win three out of six and get a draw somewhere,” he said. “But I think we can get results from all of the last six games.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
