Cardiff City head coach Neil Warnock says he could play reserves against Manchester City. The reason for such statement is the latest Cardiff City match against Chelsea.
Warnock’s side is currently 18th and they have been winning against Chelsea until 84th minute, when referee Craig Pawson didn’t disallow Cesar Azpilicueta goal, which was from clear offside.
Chelsea then scored the second to win the game and put Cardiff in tough situation.
For the upcoming match against Manchester City, Warnock says he can use U23 squad, because everything depends on the referee decisions.
“I think we can keep the score down at Man City, I think we can keep it to single figures.” he said (via LiverpoolECHO)
“But I might play the reserves down there, it’ll be interesting to see what the journalists think of that.”
“We keep getting knock-backs, I will probably play the U23s on Wednesday against Manchester City and try to keep it down to 10 or 11. It doesn’t matter who you play at the minute, it is who has a flag in his hand and who has a whistle.” added Warnock.
Liverpool currently have 2 point advantage over Man City in title race with 1 game played more.
