Less than a month after Chris Wilder insisted some Championship teams could “implode” if they fail to win promotion, Neil Warnock, his opposite number at Cardiff City, has claimed Wolves, Aston Villa and Fulham “should” all go up this term.
Warnock, whose team are second in the table, made the claim ahead of their visit tomorrow night to Sheffield United, the club he managed for eight years.
“I don’t feel there’s pressure on us as much as the other teams,” Warnock said. “Some of the other teams should go up. They have to go up, really.”
Although United manager Wilder has questioned Warnock’s attempt to position City as modest spenders, his predecessor added: “On our wage bill, we really shouldn’t be where we are.”
