Warnock looking to open up survival fight
Cardiff must not keep "feeling sorry for ourselves" but attempt to put pressure on the teams above them, according to Neil Warnock.
The Bluebirds chief has spoken out after his side slipped back into the relegation places, having lost two successive home matches against Watford and Everton respectively, conceding eight goals in the process.
Southampton's 2-0 win against Fulham moved the south-coast outfit a point ahead of them in the table, with Cardiff now looking to respond at Wolves on Saturday.
Warnock, whose side were also rocked by the tragic death of £15million striker signing Emiliano Sala in a plane crash over the English Channel last month, acknowledged that time is running out for them in the fight to stay up.
However, he insisted that the players must not feel down and instead go about returning to winning ways to drag more teams above them into the scrap.
Warnock said: "We can't keep feeling sorry for ourselves.
"I am sure the bottom two teams would wish they were in our situation and we have to try to put pressure on the other teams now by getting a couple of good results."
