WARNOCK | "WE'VE COME A LONG WAY"
Club News27th February
Neil Warnock spoke to the press and media at Cardiff City Stadium following the Bluebirds’ 2-2 draw with Fulham, sharing his thoughts on an extremely exciting encounter.
“It was very good game for the neutral.” Neil began. “We had opportunities to win the game before half time - we could have been four goals up at the break. But they're a very good side, and took their opportunities.
“It was a kick in the teeth to go behind, but we came back strong again. Kenneth took the equaliser well, and once we went in front I thought we might score more. Give them credit, they came back, with some very good forwards and both teams can probably feel disappointed.”
The Gaffer praised the performance of Kenneth Zohore, who was at the double against the Cottagers, taking his season’s tally to seven.
“He's training hard, and listening to what we're saying,” he continued. “I thought he did very well in the second half. He's really enjoying it at the minute, and long may it continue. Not just him, you look around the squad and five or six lads have improved beyond recognition – although we've still got work to do in one or two areas.
“We've come a long way really. You can see [on Saturday], we played against one of the better sides, and we've got opportunities to pit our wits against a lot of good teams between now and the end of the season. We've had four tough games and picked up ten points, which isn't bad going.”
Ahead of kick-off Neil put pen to paper on a new contract with the Club, and was keen to share his excitement for his challenge ahead as Bluebirds boss.
“We agreed it all before, it didn't need to be rushed. It's amazing what you can do if you have ability, with a system and some belief. We want to be successful, and the lads know how hungry I am!
“I'm enjoying it. I want the lads to enjoy it, I want the fans to enjoy it, and I want them to go home thinking: 'What a game!' That's what the Championship is about, end to end stuff, like against Fulham. There was something happening all the time, a really exciting game.”
