Harry Arter says Cardiff ‘outworked’ West Ham after Neil Warnock’s side secured a crucial 2-0 win at The Cardiff City Stadium.
Goals from Junior Hoilett and Victor Camarasa earned the struggling Bluebirds a vital three points, and midfielder Arter was full of praise for the side’s ‘work rate and quality’.
“We outworked them and we had a lot of quality on the ball. We raised our level of performance today. We put things right on the pitch after a hard week in training,” Arter told the BBC.
“Rightly so we won and to a man we stood up today. That level of work rate and quality got us the three points.
“From now until the end we need to look at today’s performance as a benchmark. No matter what happens we have to give our all.
“Everything we’ve done this season has been fighting until the end until the last three games. It’s always been a united dressing room. There’s been no rift in this squad.”
Cardiff are two points from safety behind Burnley, who play Liverpool at Anfield tomorrow.
