There were scenes of unbridled celebration after the final whistle on Sunday, with a club record crowd at Cardiff City Stadium of 32,478 spilling on to the pitch.

If Cardiff fail to win and Fulham claim three points at Birmingham, the Cottagers will go up in second place.

The Bluebirds won promotion from the Championship with Sunday's 0-0 draw at home against Reading.

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.

"It's the biggest achievement in my 38-year career by an absolute mile", Warnock said. There are always going to be doubters and people that will question you as a player but you've just got to get through it.

Cardiff was already assured of a slot in the English top-flight league even before its final game, as third placer Fulham FC lost 1-3 to Birmingham City FC earlier. A win would have lifted the London club above Cardiff.

"Why not? I have nothing to be afraid of", Warnock added. "I've not slept for longer than about three hours". They will now face Derby in the play-offs, in a deflated mood, their impressive unbeaten run ended alongside dreams of automatic promotion. Regardless of the poor standard of the game, Neil Warnock and owner Vincent Tan were seen celebrating with fans in a jubilant pitch invasion after the game.

Cardiff finish second and will join Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League next season.

Warnock proved to be a ideal fit for Cardiff, who play in the image of their gritty and no-nonsense manager. "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.
