Neil Warnock makes telling point on Crystal Palace return

BY SAM SMITH

Former Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock felt his Cardiff City side were well worth their point at Selhurst Park this afternoon.

Palace racked up 31 shots and struck the woodwork twice, but Warnock was keen to remind that the Eagles’ Vicente Guaita made the best save of the game.

Warnock said: “We did really well, don’t forget their goalie made the best save of the game when Kadeem [Harris] went through.

“The tackle at the end was important from [Sol] Bamba. It was a miracle the way he got around Wilfried [Zaha] and slid in. I told him he shouldn’t even be giving him a five-yard headstart but credit to him for making that challenge.”

Warnock had two spells as Palace boss, the first between 2017-2010 and the second a five-month stint from the start of 2014-15.

“Selhurst is a wonderful place to come,” said Warnock. “It’s a wonderful football club. Those fans really try to suck the ball into the net behind that goal.”
