Cardiff got promoted to the Premier League with a draw against Reading, as Fulham lost to Birmingham 3-1.
It’s an incredible achievement from a team who were second from bottom when Neil Warnock came in to the club in October 2016. He has transformed the club and now we are a Premier League team.
It helped a lot that Fulham lost as that took the pressure off us. It was a frustrating game, as Reading’s stubborn defence kept us at bay and restricted us from any clear chances.
Junior Hoilett had a decent effort in the first half, as he fired a curling effort narrowly wide from the edge of the box. Kenneth Zohore also came close, but his effort was blocked inside the box.
In the second half, Zohore had another effort, this time firing over. Craig Bryson forced Vito Mannone into a save with a effort which lacked any power.
In the end, we didn’t need to score and at the final whistle the fans ran onto the pitch, with everyone ecstatic. What an achievement!
Warnock fully deserves to be manager of the season. He has made this happen and he has done an incredible. He deserves all the praise he gets. He says this is his greatest ever achievement and it is no wonder.
In the end we finish two points above Fulham. Reading on the other hand escape relegation, finishing 20th.
Now the focus is on next season with the target to stay up in the Premier League.
