Cardiff City Win Premier League Promotion On Dramatic Championship Final Day

Cardiff City Win Premier League Promotion On Dramatic Championship Final Day

Warnock secured a record eighth promotion in English football by guiding Cardiff to an unlikely second place finish in the Championship. I don't know, it's just wonderful. "I got offered a short-term contract at Oldham, to sit on the bench", says Etheridge, whose only game for the club was in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy against Preston North End.

Warnock is no stranger to the Premier League having had previous spells with Crystal Palace, Queens Park Rangers and Sheffield United but this time he feels he has nothing to lose. He did not made it to the main lineup of Fulham despite playing as a backup from 2008 to 2014-the period represents the height of the team's success.

Just last March, Etheridge and the Azkals pulled off the biggest achievement yet in Philippine football when the squad downed Tajikistan, 2-1, in the qualifiers to book the country's first ever slot in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.

Neil Warnock's side knew a home win over Reading would clinch second place behind champions Wolves, yet could only manage a 0-0 draw against their lowly opponents.

It was a disappointing day for several Irish players in the Championship.

Speaking to talkSPORT, he said: "All the times I have been in the Premier League prior, I felt a bit let down by the chairmen if I'm honest". "At my age, you're not going to get many more chances".

"They're proud of being Bluebirds again, the fans", Warnock added.

The Cottagers are favourites to win promotion back to the Premier League, trading at [2.82] ahead of [3.8] Aston Villa and [3.9] Middlesbrough who play each other, and the [5.2] outsiders Derby County.

Last season, the clubs met twice in the Championship.
