Neil Warnock is looking towards a play-off spot next season but concedes even that would be a ‘massive achievement’ for Cardiff.

Warnock’s looking to take Cardiff back to the Premier League but told BBC Radio Wales the budget the Bluebirds have will make that difficult but he knows he needs a few more options.

He said: ‘We need a few more goals, we need a few more options off the bench. It’s going to be a massive achievement for everybody at the club if we can get up there near the play-offs next season with the budget we’ve got and the amount we’re going to spend.’

Having been brought in to keep Cardiff in the Championship that’s been secured easier than many might have anticipated? Warnock’s dipped into the transfer market but took the conscious decision in January NOT to spend too much money as he wanted to save this for the summer.

This has at times frustrated the experienced Warnock, who signed Kieran Richardson, Marouane Chamakh and Sol Bamba as free agent following his arrival – bringing in Greg Halford permanently from Rotherham and Allan McGregor on loan from Hull in January, but with the right players coming in this summer that objective could be achieved.

Warnock added: ‘I haven’t spent any money yet because I didn’t want to throw it away stupidly in January. We’ve had to bit our tongues really and be a little bit frustrated, but if we get some quality in and get a bit more choice off the bench, that’s what our objective is.’
