Cardiff City

Morrison bullish over survival hopes

11th March 2019, 15:50 by James Mason

Sean Morrison says Cardiff City have given themselves a "great chance" of staying in the Premier League this season.

In danger of slipping further away from safety, the Bluebirds picked up a much-needed three points at home to West Ham United on Saturday to remain in touching distance of Burnley and Southampton.

Cardiff are just two points behind the Clarets and the Saints but Neil Warnock's men face a tough run of fixtures, with clashes against Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool coming up in their next four games.

Morrison, who was at the heart of the defence as his side kept an eighth clean sheet of the season in that 2-0 win over the Hammers, knows it will be difficult to climb out of the bottom three but he is adamant the players have it in them to avoid relegation.

He told Cardiff City TV: "It's going to be a tough final two months – we've got eight games left, with some big teams and some tough away games. Every game is a cup final, but we've given ourselves a great chance."
