The Welsh side sit second from bottom in the Premier League and entertain West Brom in a relegation six-pointer on Saturday afternoon.

The Norwegian appears to be fighting a losing battle but Theophile-Catherine thinks the side are still more than capable of picking up the necessary points to survive.

He said: "If you look at our games, it's really been small details why we've lost.

"The other teams have just had that little bit extra. When Ole came in he told us that he wanted 'hard work' from us every day.

"I can now see it in everyone's face. I can see the motivation."

The full-back thinks that the high standards his manager set as a player will help Cardiff during the remainder of the season.

He added: "Ole has won many trophies as a player for Manchester United - and, even though I was little at the time, I remember him scoring in the Champions League final.

"They looked dead - but no one could ever rule out that United team. He drums that into us - that we have to work very hard to the very last kick of the match."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
