Ryan Babel’s late winner for Fulham leaves Cardiff on brink of relegation

This part of west London has never been a happy hunting ground for Neil Warnock. His 11th attempt to record a league victory at Craven Cottage ended in failure after a superb strike from Ryan Babel shattered Cardiff’s hopes of piling the pressure on Brighton in the battle to avoid relegation.With just two games left to play and still trailing by three points before their rivals’ meeting with Newcastle later on today, it will take all of their manager’s expertise in escapology to survive now. Yet Warnock will know it could all have been so different had Cardiff been awarded a penalty in the first half, even if they could do nothing about Babel’s touch of class that earned the points for a Fuham side that has equalled their club record of three consecutive Premier League victories.
