Cardiff boss expects response

1st March 2019, 13:01 by Gareth Freeman

Cardiff boss Neil Warnock says some of his players have "underperformed and underachieved" but is confident they can respond.

The Bluebirds were beaten 3-0 by Everton at home in midweek and in his post-match comments Warnock stated he felt "small individual errors" had cost his side.

The Cardiff boss is expected to make changes for the trip to Wolves on Saturday after that limp display against Everton, and Warnock has revealed he has held a meeting with his squad prior to the clash at Molineux and is now expecting a response.

"I had a chat with them all yesterday and put my point of view forward about the remainder of the season," he told reporters.

"After that they had a meeting of their own and I was quite pleased about that. They were no doubt talking about certain things I was commenting on. They're a good group of lads and you can never fault the effort.

"They know they've been sloppy. It's about trying to rectify that and giving a good account of ourselves."

He added: "All I've said to them is 'have a look at your own performances - do you think you've done as well as you could do in the last couple of games?

"All I've asked is for them to look in the mirror. There's a few lads who know they've underperformed and underachieved. They'll be desperate to put it right."
