Cardiff City will be playing Premier League football next season after Fulham lost at Birmingham and the Bluebirds drew with Reading on Sunday.

Drama was set to unfold as the two clubs entered the final day of the season neck-and-neck.

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

Despite losing 1-0 to Millwall Steve Bruce's Aston Villa are in the playoffs at the first season of asking and he will be hoping his John Terry led team can go one step further with an automatic return to the Premier League.

Combined with Fulham's 3-1 loss to Birmingham, the result meant at the final whistle the promotion party could begin.


"The team has been strong all year and to finish the way that we did was fantastic", he told Cardiff City FC reporters.

Warnock, one of the most charismatic managers in the English game, gets a fourth shot in charge of a Premier League club after stints with Sheffield United, Queens Park Rangers and Crystal Palace.

True to his words, it was indeed a remarkable year for Etheridge. He is working under Vincent Tan and I know I am going to get the support I want. Players who thought they were washed up have cleaned up thanks to Neil Warnock's rescue remedy, but few have made a journey quite like the goalkeeper. "I didn't think we would get in the play-offs let alone the Premier League". Burton suffered 2-1 defeat to Preston.

Asked whether he is now the most renowned footballer from the Philippines, which is a country that pays far greater attention to sports such as boxing, basketball and billiards than football, Etheridge laughs and says: "I'd like to think so, yeah".

Cardiff fans are desperate for victory and promotion, with today's clash a sell-out.
