Cardiff boss working on January buys

27th November 2018, 17:53 by Gareth Freeman

Neil Warnock admits Cardiff need to strengthen in the January window if they are to avoid the drop and says they are working on deals.

The Bluebirds boss felt "fine margins" proved the difference in the 1-0 loss at Everton over the weekend and says a few additions in the winter window could have a huge impact.

Cardiff are second from bottom in the Premier League table but they are only one point adrift of safety.

Warnock is hopeful he will be able to bring in a few new faces in January, although he admits Cardiff cannot compete with most of their Premier League rivals financially.

"It's frustrating because I know with two or three more players, if we had them in the summer, we could be far higher than this," he said. "We've still got an opportunity to prove the bookies wrong [by staying up].

"It's not easy [bringing in new players], we're working on it now. We need three, maybe four. We are working on that, but it is easier said than done. The big teams have got 40, 50 million for a player. We're no way near that. We can't spend that kind of money."
