Warnock sets promotion record, revels in Cardiff City achievement

Warnock sets promotion record, revels in Cardiff City achievement

With a 0-0 draw at home to Reading, Cardiff joined champion Wolverhampton Wanderers in going up to the world's most lucrative league as its 69-year-old manager, Neil Warnock, earned a record eighth promotion in English football.

Fulham, who were also in contention for promotion, slumped to a 3-1 defeat at Birmingham City to finish third.

The Blue Birds will be playing in the Premier League for the first time since 2013-14.

After the final whistle, Warnock described guiding the club to promotion as "the biggest achievement in my 38-year career by an absolute mile".

Etheridge will get a chance to make his Premier League debut next season, something that eluded him during his spell with Fulham from 2008 to 2014, having to play behind first-choice goalie Mark Schwarzer and David Stockdale.

Before the match Fulham needed to win at St Andrew's and hope that Reading deny Cardiff. "We knew we had to do that - we faced a lot of long balls, aerial balls, crosses, set-plays so it wasn't a pretty game on the eye but in the end it was the result we wanted".

First of all , even though short sellers take the position that a stock is headed lower, by most definitions, they are "investors".

"It's been a wonderful 24 hours for me and the family", Warnock said. The playoff final is at Wembley Stadium on May 26.

Since the late 1970's, Newcastle United have dominated Cardiff City. There was another one after full time, when Cardiff's Malaysian owner, Vincent Tan, was carried on the shoulders of fans.

When Warnock was appointed in October 2016, Cardiff were second from bottom of the Championship.

Warnock proved to be a flawless fit for Cardiff, who play in the image of their gritty and no-nonsense manager.

Last season, the clubs met twice in the Championship. "I didn't think we would get in the play-offs let alone the Premier League".

Junior Hoilett is leading the club in goals with 11 this season.
