'He Runs Around Like A Chicken With Its Neck Wrung At Times'

Cardiff City picked up their fourth win of the season on Saturday, beating the troubled Southampton 1-0.

After starting the season without a win in their first eight games, Cardiff have won four of the subsequent eight. They now sit 14th in the table with 14 points.

Ireland international, Harry Arter, stepped from the pitch in the 91st minute against Southampton. He did so to a standing ovation from his own supporters.

Post-match, Cardiff manager, Neil Warnock, simultaneously praised Arter and criticised previous performances.

"I thought that was his best game today because he was more disciplined," Warnock told Wales Online.

He's been a little bit erratic. Fans love him but he runs around like a chicken with its neck wrung at times, instead of being responsible.

But today I thought he did both, ran about and tackled but he was responsible today, which makes him a hell of a good player.

Arter, who has played 13 times for Cardiff this season is on loan from Bournemouth. The 28-year-old said late last month that his dream season would see Cardiff stay up, Neil Warnock stay on and the club sign him permanently.
