Cardiff City's Premier League promotion 'best job' of career - Neil Warnock

Cardiff sealed its place in the Premier League with a 0-0 draw against Reading, coupled with Fulham's loss to Birmingham City on Sunday's final day of the season.

Cardiff's goalless home draw with Reading - who survived in the Championship as a result - was enough to confirm promotion as third-placed Fulham crashed to a 3-1 defeat at Birmingham.

This post was syndicated from The NEWS. A win would have lifted the London club above Cardiff. We can never be like the two Manchester clubs, or Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea or Spurs.

As one of veteran manager and promotion specialist Neil Warnock's early summer signings, Etheridge truly made a mark in the team not tipped by many to achieve automatic promotion this season.

"It's been a wonderful 24 hours for me and the family", Warnock said.

Now the best in the business await what Neil Etheridge and his Cardiff City teammates can bring to what many consider as the best league in the world.

Fulham join Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and Derby County in the playoffs, which kick off on May 11. There was another one after full time, when Cardiff's Malaysian owner, Vincent Tan, was carried on the shoulders of fans.

Warnock proved to be a ideal fit for Cardiff, which plays in the image of its gritty and no-nonsense manager. Not that Etheridge is bothered about any negative vibes on the back of what has been a landmark season for club and country, with Cardiff's promotion following hot on the heels of the Philippines qualifying for the Asian Cup in March.

"But I got offered a contract from Oldham to sit on the bench and I did it".

A legitimate chance came in the 19th minute for the hosts as midfielder Junior Hoilett narrowly missed a curling effort.
