Neil Warnock insists Cardiff City still have the chance to survive in the Premier League following their 2-0 win against Brighton & Hove Albion.
Goals from Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Sean Morrison brightened Cardiff’s hopes of retaining their Premier League status for one more season. The much needed victory has reduced the gap to two points with the Seagulls but Chris Hughton’s side has played a game less.
Nobody had expected the Bluebirds to defy the odds and now they will be hosting Liverpool what could be a big game for them. Warnock’s side is also scheduled to take on Manchester United in the last game of the season but the gaffer is confident of escaping the drop this time.
Warnock said, “There were so many pundits this morning said it would be our last game in the Premier League. We’re alive and kicking.
“I was proud of the performance: it was disciplined, I think we could have created a few more (chances) but overall I was delighted with all the departments.
“I’ve never lost belief that we can win games. But whether we can get enough points is a different ball game.
“I think we were 100-1 in something today (to be relegated) – 100-1 on that was. There’s a lot of water to go.
“At least now it makes Sunday’s game more important. It’s a great occasion Sunday, full house against one of the best teams in the world, and we aren’t relegated yet.”
