Cardiff City defender Sean Morrison has urged his team-mates to use Sunday’s frustrating loss against Chelsea to ‘bounce back’ against Manchester City tonight.

Speaking to Skysports, Morrison revealed the Bluebirds squad were ‘disappointed’ and ‘angry’ after the match at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Cardiff felt aggrieved by a number of decisions made by referee Craig Pawson and his team as Chelsea came from behind to win 2-1 in South Wales.

Manager Neil Warnock labelled the league’s officials the ‘worst in the world’ after the match, and could yet face disciplinary action from the FA.

With Huddersfield Town and Fulham both now relegated to the Championship, there is just one more spot in the bottom three that Cardiff must avoid.

They currently occupy that place with 28 points, five less than Burnley, Southampton and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Morrison, who has played in 27 of the club’s 31 league matches to date, explained that the players will be doing all they can to avoid the drop.

He said:

Initially, after the game, there was a lot of disappointment and anger, the boys were upset. We’ve been through a lot in the last year, so we’ve come up against things in the past and we always bounce back. We’ve got to use what happened on the weekend to stick together and bounce back. There’s a long way to go, we know that with the performance we put in we’re capable of turning over teams and winning games. We’ve got seven cup finals to go and all we can do is give our best and make sure we’re one of the teams that stay up.

Will Cardiff get a result at Manchester City tonight?
