Warnock can't fault players

26th November 2018, 10:32 by Nick Harris

Neil Warnock was more than happy with the endeavour of his Cardiff players in their defeat at Everton on Saturday.

Warnock's men were in the game right until the final whistle and almost got a last-gasp equaliser when Sol Bamba's header glanced wide.

The Bluebirds boss was happy with the side's efforts but bemoaned a lack of offensive quality which was exploited by Gylfi Sigurdsson who scored the only goal on the hour mark.

He said: "At half-time I thought if we could play a bit better I said to the lads I thought we could get three (points), because I thought we could have done better in the final third. I thought we made them look quite average. But that's where you need that little bit more quality to create more.

"The goal was disappointing. I thought little things didn't go for us. I thought Kadeem Harris was fouled just before the goal, then Harry Arter kicked the ball off their lad for the throw-in and the ref somehow gives them a throw-in. Little things like that when you come away from home are very difficult to take.

"But I can't fault the effort and I thought the fans epitomised that. It's just a fantastic feeling at the minute, we're all trying our hardest to stay in the best league in the world."
