Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock is worried his side may face a Manchester City backlash when the two sides go head to head in South Wales tomorrow afternoon.
Pep Guardiola will be expecting a response from his Premier League Champions this weekend after his side slipped to a shock midweek defeat to Lyon in the Champions League, and Warnock reckons this could be a bad thing for his newly promoted side.
“It’s a blip and might give them a kick up the backside,” said Warnock at his pre-match press conference.
“I don’t think it helps us at all. They made a few changes and looked a lot stronger when they put the regulars on in the second half. When I watch them I think ‘thank goodness we only play them twice!”
Tomrrow’s fixture could well prove to be an entertaining watch after these two sides played out a feisty FA Cup encounter last season.
