Warnock admits Cardiff are feeling ‘down’ after Wolves defeat

Neil Warnock admitted that Cardiff City players are feeling ‘down’ and ‘flat’ following the 2-0 defeat to Wolves this afternoon.

The Yorkshireman felt that his side were dominant in the opening stages of the game at Molineux, but their relegation woes were compounded by two quickfire goals in the first half.

Diogo Jota finished off a slick passing move for the hosts in the 16th minute, before he turned provider just two minutes later, squaring the ball to Raul Jimenez who had initially dispossessed Sol Bamba down the Wolves left.

The goals seemed to knock the stuffing out of the Welsh side, with Wolves missing a whole host of good opportunities to extend their lead, and speaking after the game, Neil Warnock admitted that his side looked ‘nervous’.

“We are all down, we are bound to be flat when just got beat. If you do not care then there is something wrong with you,” he told BBC’s MOTD.

“They have not done on it on purpose, but you can not afford to give a team of this quality chances like that. I thought they were so nervous. We dominated for the first 20 minutes and then I stood there and two minutes later we are 2-0 down. I can not understand it.

“I do not know what more I can get out of the lads. But I have to get more, look at how I can get more out of them. They are such an honest group, I can not fault any of them.”

Cardiff’s recent run of results which has seen them ship 10 goals in their last three games, leaves them two points from safety.
