Cardiff sinks Brighton to boost hopes

Cardiff kept alive its bid to secure Premier League survival with a 2-0 win against Brighton on Tuesday.

Neil Warnock’s side would have been pushed to the brink of relegation with a defeat at the Amex Stadium. But goals either side of half-time from Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Sean Morrison moved third-bottom Cardiff to within two points of fourth-bottom Brighton.

Brighton suffered a fourth successive league loss and keeps them in danger of being overhauled by Cardiff. The remaining hope for Brighton is they have five games to play compared to Cardiff’s four.

“We had a few pundits say it would be our final game in the Premier League but we are alive and kicking,” Warnock said. “We deserved tonight. I can’t say anything better about the players. They have been great.”
