According to coach Neil Warnock, his team can make a comeback just like golfer Tiger Woods did it in Sunday’s Augusta Masters.

On Sunday, the world of sport was going crazy when golfer Tiger Woods won his first master after eleven years.

And for Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock, this is the inspiration his team needs as they are looking for salvation in the English Premier League.

“We just have to look at the golf and at what Tiger has done – amazing,” Warnock told The Daily Mail.

“Nobody gave him a chance either. He has been written off that many times and we have too. Obviously, over the last few weeks, we have felt sorry for ourselves a few times.”

He explained: “We haven’t got time to do that at Brighton and if it’s not good enough then we accept it. But this is an opportunity to give ourselves a chance till the end of the season.”

“The players want to prove a point on Tuesday. They will want to show an attitude that says they were that disappointed with Saturday.”

“We had a meeting, went through the game and the goals that we conceded,” he said.

Analysis – Joel Matip shines in Liverpool’s win over Cardiff

It’s not often that someone in Liverpool’s defence has outshone Virgil van Dijk this season, but Joel Matip certainly did that in the win over Cardiff City.

“It was probably our worst performance of the season.”

“There isn’t one player in that changing room that wouldn’t have gone through a bad defeat, a bad performance, and what it’s always about is how you respond to that,” Warnock added.

“I expect a reaction from our players.”
