Bamba injury worry for Bluebirds

3rd March 2019, 05:13 by Michael Holland

Sol Bamba's season could be over after he picked up a knee injury in Saturday's defeat at Wolves, Neil Warnock fears.

Two goals in two minutes from Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez sealed a 2-0 Saturday stroll for the hosts at Molineux. Cardiff never recovered from the quick-fire strikes and remain third bottom, two points from the Premier League safety line.

It was a third straight defeat, with the Bluebirds conceding 10 goals in the process and they face four of the top six in their final nine games.

Boss Warnock said: "It does look gloomy at the minute but we've had quite a few situations when I've been here for the last two-and-a-half years and the gloom merchants have been there.

"The glass is half empty but we've got to show some courage now. If we concede goals like that we're not going to beat anybody but it's a different game next week.

"We don't give ourselves a chance. We need to go a goal in front for a change, rather than committing suicide like that and giving two goals away. It's stupid goals."

Cardiff also lost Bamba to a knee injury in the first half and he left Molineux on crutches.

"Sol isn't very good. We don't know the full extent but the way things are going it will be season-defining," he said. "If it's a bad one I can't see him playing again this season, but that's just assuming it's the worst scenario."
