Warnock denies internal revolt

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has dismissed reports that some of his players have lost faith in his managerial ability - just 24 hours ahead of their meeting with West Ham.

The veteran manager, who turned 70 in December has hit out at reports that he has effectively "lost the dressing room" after former Hammer Danny Gabbidon insisted that Cardiff's players were on the verge of revolt.

" I don't think there's any rift whatsoever," said Warnock during his pre-match press conference. "If they [Gabbidon and fellow accuser Nathan Blake] have been in the dressing room when I've not been around, I don't know.

"When you lose three games like we have, you are flat. Your body language is flat and training is not the same. We've just got to try and close our ears. You just have to go along with what you think is the best team and that's what I've got to focus on in the next nine games.

And Warnock - affectionately known as 'Colin' by much of the footballing fraternity - insisted that if he felt he couldn't address Cardiff's problems, he would have no hesitation in walking away from the post.

"If I thought it'd be better to have somebody different in the place, I'd say good luck to them," he added. "If [the owners] thought that, it wouldn't bother me one bit. I think I'm the best one to get us over the line this year."

City go into the West Ham clash 18th in the Premier League and two points adrift of 17th-placed Southampton. Their last three matches have all ended in defeat, with Cardiff having scored just one goal during that period whilst conceding ten.
