As reported by the Chronicle, Cardiff manager Neil Warnock feels that both Newcastle United and Brighton already have one foot in the Premier League.
Warnock clearly feels that with the start the two clubs have had, they can afford to drop points over the course of the season.
When asked about the race for promotion, and which teams would go up, Warnock said: “I think the top two can lose four or five and still go up. The other teams below are going to lose games, you forget about that really.
He then spoke about Brighton, and former Newcastle manager, Chris Hughton, adding: “Chris will be pleased to have come out of that. You really want them to go up, the way they got the injuries in the play-offs (last season) and all that. I thought it was a travesty, I really felt sorry for Chris. They haven’t sulked, they’ve got on with it.”
