Cardiff boss Warnock threatens to play kids against Man City

Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock has threatened to play the kids against Manchester City this week.

On Sunday Chelsea were headed for defeat at Cardiff City Stadium until Cesar Azpilicueta's 84th-minute equaliser from an offside position.

And Cardiff's heartbreak was complete when substitute Ruben Loftus-Cheek headed in a winner in added time.

Cardiff are away to reigning champions Manchester City on Wednesday, before trips to face relegation rivals Burnley and Brighton.

"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," Warnock said in quotes reported by The Sun.

"It doesn't matter who you play at the minute, it is who has a flag in his hand and who has a whistle."
