The Bluebirds fell to a home defeat to Manchester United on Saturday evening. After the game, Neil Warnock addressed the assembled press and media.
“To concede the first goal was tough.” began the Gaffer. “It knocked us down, and before we knew it, we were two down, so it was very difficult. I thought we came back well, but if we concede goals like we did then we won’t win games.
“I wasn’t disappointed by the effort shown today, we were playing against a top side with a new manager. On the plus side the crowd were up for it, and at 2-1 I thought we had a chance, if we could have got the first goal after half-time. Ken Zohore has been doing well in training over the last three weeks, and he looked sharp when he came on today.
“We were 2-0 down at Bolton a year ago today and everybody wrote us off. We ended up getting promoted so let’s not dwell too much on today.”
The Bluebirds now face two festive fixtures away from home, beginning with Crystal Palace on Boxing Day, and the Gaffer looked forward to our upcoming matches.
“If you’d told me at the start of the season that we would be outside the bottom three at Christmas, I would have snapped your hand off. We’ve just got to take the positives.”
He concluded, “We’ve got two tough away games next at Palace and Leicester, and we’ve got to try and get points away from home. I’m looking forward to two good games, and I know our fans will back us until the end.”
