Warnock drags others into fight
Neil Warnock was delighted to drag Premier League rivals into the relegation battle after victory over Bournemouth.
In Cardiff's first home game since record £15million signing Emiliano Sala and pilot David Ibbotson went missing after the plane carrying them over the English Channel disappeared on January 21, Bobby Reid's double gave the Bluebirds their first win of 2019.
Cardiff moved to within two points of 17th-placed Burnley and Warnock said: "I'm delighted to get the three points because it will make a few other clubs a little bit more nervous now.
"We lost at Arsenal in the week but I was really pleased.You don't often have 19 shots on goal at the Emirates and Bobby should have had five goals this week.
"The whole squad has worked hard and we didn't even have Harry (Arter) and Victor (Camarasa) here.
"But we made up for it, and we were quite bold in the tactics to have Bobby as one of the main lads breaking from midfield. I thought we were quite positive in the way we set up."
