Steven Caulker accepts that Cardiff have got a mountain to climb in their quest for Barclays Premier League survival.
The Welsh club look destined to make a quickfire Championship return, with their plight underlined by a 3-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace last Saturday.
– Cardiff captain Steven Caulker.
Staying in the Premier League is all the motivation we need. There is no other.
We have to show more fight than we did against Palace. We have to draw confidence now from those games we've had this season where we have played well.
We are going to have to find some form and a little bit of luck along the way, too. That would not go amiss.
We've got some tough, tough games coming up now. We can't deny that. We do have a mountain to climb.
