Neil Warnock believes Tiger Woods' stunning Masters triumph can act as inspiration for relegation-threatened Cardiff to mount their own comeback success story.

Warnock was watching on Sunday as Woods wrote one of the greatest sporting chapters by claiming a fifth green jacket at Augusta, 11 years after his previous major win.

Cardiff's hopes of avoiding Premier League relegation also appear fanciful with a five-point gap to safety and their remaining five fixtures including games against Liverpool and Manchester United.

But Cardiff would cut the gap to two points by winning at Brighton tomorrow night, although Chris Hughton's Seagulls do have a game in hand.

"We just have to look at the golf and at what Tiger has done - amazing," Warnock said of Woods' fifth Augusta triumph, which came after multiple back surgeries and personal problems had threatened to end the 43-year-old's career.

"Nobody gave him a chance either, he has been written off that many times and we have.

"Obviously over the last few weeks we have felt sorry for ourselves a few times.

"We haven't got time to do that (at Brighton) and if it's not good enough then we accept it.

"But this is an opportunity to give ourselves a chance till the end of the season. We have to grab that."
