Cardiff City are more than capable of doing enough to stay in the Premier League come the end of the season, according to striker Oumar Niasse.

As reported by Skysports, Niasse said maintaining the mentality displayed in the defeat to Chelsea will go a long way towards ensuring their survival.

The 28-year-old joined the Bluebirds on loan in January until the end of the season having made just five substitute appearances for the Toffees in the first half of the season.

He has since made nine top-flight outings for the Welsh side and is yet to register a goal or assist for the club.

With six matches of the season to play, Cardiff sit 18th in the table and are six points from safety.

However, their next two matches are against opponents who are also struggling and could be drawn into the relegation battle in Burnley and Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Bluebirds were deemed unlucky by most to have come away from the Chelsea match two games ago without a result, having been ahead with six minutes to go and conceding a goal that was scored from an offside position.

Niasse said he believes the South Wales outfit will be just fine, should they replicate that performance against Maurizio Sarri’s men for the rest of the season.

Speaking at a Football For Peace Dinner last night, the Senegalese explained:

Of course we can get out. We have six games to go and we have two important games against opponents who are not far from us. Refereeing decisions are part of the game, we have to deal with that and move to the next game. We did well, but unfortunately we didn’t get a point. We should get the three points, but we didn’t, so that’s all we can do. We’re going to try all the way to do it until the end. With the mentality we had against Chelsea, if we play like that, then we’re going to do it.

Should Niasse keep his starting place against Burnley on Saturday?

Yes
