Warnock fires rallying call
Cardiff boss Neil Warnock says now is the time for them to stand up and be counted following a 3-0 defeat against Everton.
Gylfi Sigurdsson scored twice and Dominic Calvert-Lewin added another in stoppage time as Everton climbed two Premier League places to ninth, while Cardiff slip further towards the relegation zone.
The Bluebirds will drop into the bottom three on Wednesday should Southampton pick up at least a point against Fulham.
They head to Wolves on Saturday having conceded eight goals in successive home defeats to Watford and Everton, but Warnock remains defiant about their survival chances.
"We will probably be in the bottom three when we go to Wolves and people will be writing us off," Warnock said. "I know my team for the Wolves game and I want people who will be in the trenches because I was let down by two or three tonight.
"I'm not going to throw the towel in and now is the time to stand up and be counted. We will not go down without a fight. But we're running out of games now.
"We've got 10 games left and we have to make our own luck."
