Warnock confident despite West Ham loss

first_imgDespite losing 3-1 at West Ham on Tuesday, Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock believes his team can win games away from home and pick up points.Warnock remains defiant as the loss leaves them just two points outside the relegation zone.Joe Ralls missed a penalty to put Cardiff City ahead in the first half as Lucas Perez netted a brace to help West Ham to a 3-1 victory at the London Stadium.“Tonight showed we can win away games from home,” Warnock told Sky Sports.I pulled Manuel Pellegrini in the technical area and said: ‘how can we be losing 3-0’ – it was a mad 12 minutes, then the penalty miss.“If that goes in then you could sense the crowd was beginning to think it wasn’t going their way.“I refuse to criticize Ralls – he’ll get some stick from the fans but it takes guts to take a penalty. I can’t even watch one. I wouldn’t criticize him.declan rice, england, West ham UnitedReport: England’s Rice gets death threats George Patchias – September 9, 2019 England International Declan Rice has received death threats.Rice a one time Ireland International, switched allegiances only this year. The West Ham United man played for…“How can you legislate for two lads going for the same ball, there’s not a lot we can do. We work on these things in training.“It’s frustrating to concede goals that we’ve done all season not just tonight – you think we don’t work on it, we probably shouldn’t bother. It might work better than that.“We’ve shown we can compete. Tonight we looked a decent side. After we weathered the storm in the first 10 minutes, we played some good stuff.“It would have been interesting to see the penalty go in. It’s another disappointment for me, but I’m going to get those at my age.”last_img read more
