Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock couldn’t resist taking a swipe at Swansea City following his team’s 1-o loss at the Liberty Stadium today.
Warnock saw his side lose out narrowly to their Welsh rivals as a Ben Wilmot goal was enough to seal all three points for Steve Cooper’s men.
However, despite admitting it was a tight affair and calling on his players to do better, Warnock couldn’t help himself when speaking about the atmosphere inside the stadium.
“I just felt it was there to be won today. I know it’s a local derby, but I thought we quietened the crowd down,” Warnock said following the game, with quotes taken from Wales Online.
“I’ll be disappointed in the return match if it’s not a lot louder than that.”
The defeat means the Bluebirds are still without a win on the road this season. Warnock’s men were expected to challenge at the top end of the table following relegation from the Premier League last term but find themselves down in 14th place after today.
Cardiff were missing two of their most prominent attacking players in Lee Tomlin and Junior Hoilett, something Warnock was keen to point out didn’t help matters this afternoon.
The old master is at it again here it seems, revving his own fans up already for the return fixture.
However, it doesn’t really matter, does it? Swansea got the three points and the bragging rights for today.
Cardiff have a lot of work to do even if they are to challenge for the top six. It’s probably best Warnock concentrates on his team and their performance, rather than that of the Swansea fans.
