Warnock looks to strengthen
Cardiff boss Neil Warnock has suggested he will use the January transfer window to boost their chances of avoiding relegation.
The Bluebirds succumbed to Gylfi Sigurdsson's 59th-minute goal on Saturday, which lifted Everton up to sixth place in the Premier League table and left Cardiff in the bottom three.
Warnock hailed the effort of his players during the 1-0 defeat, but believes adding quality in January will be crucial to their chances of avoiding relegation.
"That's the best we can do," said the Bluebirds boss. "I think to stay up we have to have that little bit more quality. But it's not easy in January, the big clubs find it difficult as well. I do feel we can improve the squad to give us a fighting chance and if we get three, maybe four, players.
"It's these things that drive me on as a manager. That's why I'm in my 70th year. Keeping proving people (wrong). This would be the biggest achievement in my life if we could stay up.
"We're not going to give it up easily. Probably we shouldn't have gone up last year and we did, proved a few people wrong. It's twice as hard in this league but nothing's impossible."
