Neil Warnock spoke in front of the gathered press and media on Friday morning, as he looked forward to a table-topping trip to Molineux.

The Gaffer began by explaining his delight with the Bluebirds' signing of striker Omar Bogle from Wigan Athletic on Thursday.

“We’re pleased to have him on board," said Neil. "We’ve looked at the squad and for example if Ken [Zohore] is injured or out and Danny Ward is up there, then we’ve nothing else to change. I just think for a long season we have to look for a new striker to supplement what we got really.

“It’s quite a good investment at his age. He’s got a love for freedom and I think that’s what we needed. We needed someone who’s got a bit of hunger and not being impatient about being a regular at the moment.”

Neil was also pleased to share the news that full back Joe Bennett is staying with the club after the player turned down an approach to leave South Wales earlier this week.

“I’m pleased with him," the Gaffer continued. "It was up to him to say yes or no really. Joe’s been playing well, he can see what we’re doing, and his wife is settled down here. There’s a lot of pluses to stay at the moment and it’s an exciting place.

“Money isn’t everything. He was offered a very good contract but I think it speaks well for the lad and the Club at the moment, at where we are, when you can turn that down.”

With all eyes now set on Saturday's clash away at Wolves, Neil shared his views on what promises to be a exciting encounter at Molineux.

“They've got some good players," he added. "So it will be a good test for us. We’re all looking forward to it.

“I think it will be a good game and it’s a fabulous crowd - Molineux is a great stadium to get an atmosphere. The Wolves fans are all behind the team.

“It’s a massive challenge for us to go up against some of the best players in the division, with the quality that they’ve got and the money that they’ve spent - but I don’t envy that.

“We’re just really about ourselves. We’re happy with what we’ve got. We’ve gone about it slightly differently, but I imagine that our lads are quietly looking forward to it.

“Let’s go enjoy it and test ourselves!”
