Cardiff City

Warnock salutes huge Bluebirds win

30th December 2018, 01:12 by Michael Holland

Cardiff boss Neil Warnock labelled the 1-0 victory at Leicester, their first away success this term, as their best win of the season.

Victor Camarasa's 25-yard effort in the second minute of stoppage time sealed Cardiff's first away win in the Premier League since April 2014 and moved them four points clear of the relegation places.

Goalkeeper Neil Etheridge also inspired the visitors as he saved James Maddison's penalty and made a host of other fine stops. He denied Jamie Vardy, Demarai Gray and Ricardo Pereira, much to the relief of Warnock.

"It's the best day since we've been back in the Premier League," Warnock said. "It's the best performance of the season, by an absolute mile. Defensively I thought we were outstanding.

"There are a few teams down there who didn't expect to be. That's difficult mentally. We've always known we would be down there.

"I thought we deserved to win. We limited them. If we'd have been precise in the final third we could have scored three or four.

"I'm really proud how they put their bodies on the line. We've come along way, we've improved so much since the start of the season.

"We've bust a few coupons haven't we, with the way Leicester have been playing."
