Cardiff City have the team spirit to ‘get the job done’ and avoid relegation this season according to striker Danny Ward.

BBC Sport write that Ward believes their experiences of last season will be beneficial to the Bluebirds’ squad in the coming weeks.

The 27-year old has made 11 Premier League appearances for the club this season, with eight of those coming from the substitutes bench.

He has been struggling with injury throughout the campaign and scored just once, a 70th-minute strike in September’s 3-2 home defeat to Arsenal.

Something that is not a good omen for Cardiff is the fact that they are the division’s second lowest scorers this term with 25 goals, trailed only by bottom club Huddersfield Town on 15.

Centre-back Sol Bamba is joint top Bluebirds scorer with forwards Bobby Reid and Calum Patterson on four strikes apiece.

Ahead of the crucial run-in, Ward promised that Neil Warnock’s squad would be doing everything they could to avoid dropping straight back down to the Championship.

He said:

We’ve got nine games left and we just have got to give it absolutely everything. We spoke about last season when we had a bit of a sticky pitch and it looked like promotion was fading away when suddenly you know we kicked in a good run of games. It shows just how that confidence can build and you can carry it into the next game. I think with the spirit that we’ve got in the team we’ll get the job done.
