NW: WE MUST TAKE OUR OPPORTUNITIES

30 October 2016

Some tough games ahead, but the Gaffer is looking forward to the challenge...

The Bluebirds slipped to their first defeat in four on Saturday, with a somewhat cruel 1-0 defeat at home to Wigan Athletic.

Shortly after the final whistle, Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock offered his thoughts to the assembled press and media. 

“I knew it would be a 'one niller'”, began Neil. “I just thought that we would be the ones who would be able to get the one goal. I was disappointed with the way we conceded, there were one or two errors in midfield which allowed them to get the space in the box and then he [Jordi Gomez] took it well.

“It was a typical away performance from Wigan really; I’m sure they’ll be delighted with it, they slowed the tempo down a lot. You’ve got to take your chances and if you take your chances then you win the game.

“We missed Rickie Lambert a bit, he’s done well for us and he’s been our talisman in the games we’ve played so far; but that’s life in the Championship, you get injuries and you have to get on with it.

“I still thought we created enough chances today though. I thought we could have got a few more decisions for fouls on Anthony Pilkington in particular. 

“I can’t fault the effort, there were a few elementary mistakes for the winning goal, but we had numerous opportunities to put it in the back of the net. Against a team like Wigan you have to take your chances. If they had to come out at us it would have made it a lot easier for us to counter attack and get more goals but it wasn’t to be. 

“We’ve got to look after ourselves now. There are a few tough games coming up but I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
