Cardiff manager Neil Warnock ready to roll his sleeves up against Millwall

Cardiff boss Neil Warnock cannot wait to take his Sky Bet Championship promotion-chasers into battle at Millwall on Friday night.

The Bluebirds head to the New Den looking to keep themselves in the hunt for a top-two finish and keep ahead of their play-off rivals.

Warnock, though, is not expecting an easy ride against Neil Harris’ team, who will have a point to prove in front of the live television cameras following their shock midweek FA Cup replay defeat at Rochdale.

“I like going to places like Millwall because this is what it’s all about. Both teams are very similar in the way they play, and how they ask their players to play,” Warnock said.

“Everybody has to roll their sleeves up because both sides will be giving everything – and that is how it should be.”

Warnock, however, knows Cardiff have achieved nothing yet as they look to keep up with the likes of fellow promotion contenders Derby and Aston Villa behind runaway leaders Wolves.

“We are flying miles ahead of where we should be, but we’ve got to keep our feet on the ground,” he said.

“There’s two places up for grabs and we’ve got to try to get one of those.”

Cardiff will have Joe Bennett back from suspension after the defender was sent off during the FA Cup defeat by Manchester City.

Warnock was left less than impressed by the late second yellow card for another poor tackle on City substitute Brahim Diaz – after a horror tackle on Leroy Sane – and made Bennett train on his own last weekend.

The Bluebirds boss, though, has no doubts how the player will respond if brought back into the fold on Friday night.

“Bennett’s apologised and said it wouldn’t happen again and he’s flying now,” Warnock said.

“He thought he was taking one for the team, but he’s learned from it and apologised from me and the team.

“He made a mistake, held his hand up and got on with it – and there have been a lot worse tackles this year.”

Lions boss Harris, meanwhile, has his own ideas of what sort of encounter awaits under the floodlights on Friday.

“Any Neil Warnock team I have played or managed against has always been on the front foot and aggressive, so I don’t think it’ll be for the faint-hearted,” Harris told reporters.

“We’re very low down in the passing stats in the division and Cardiff are below us. It won’t be football for the purists, but it will be a good advert for Championship football.

“It will be two big sides being aggressive, going toe-to-toe and we will play on the front foot.”
