Warnock wants Cardiff ‘to give a good account’ of themselves against Liverpool

Neil Warnock says he wants Cardiff to ‘give a good account’ of themselves as they prepare to face league leaders Liverpool this weekend.

Warnock’s side host title chasing Liverpool on Sunday, with both sides desperate for points for differing reasons.

Cardiff boosted their hopes of survival with a vital 2-0 win at Brighton on Tuesday night, and are now just two points from safety with four games to go.

Warnock is anticipating a difficult afternoon against a Liverpool side who have lost just once in the league this season, but has urged his players to perform in front of what will be a sell-out crowd at the Cardiff City stadium.

“We’ve just got to try and give a good account of ourselves for the fans that are going because it’s a sell-out and it probably could’ve sold out twice more as well,” Warnock told his pre-match press conference.

“It’s going to be a great day but I don’t want it to be a lovely occasion but we still get battered.”
