Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock says that thinking about the club's Premier League fixture at home to Newcastle United 'gives him goose-pimples'.

Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock has revealed his excitement ahead of the club's Premier League fixture against Newcastle United.

The newly-promoted side suffered a 2-0 defeat at Bournemouth last weekend, but Saturday's clash represents the first top-flight game in Cardiff in four years.

Warnock has said that he has got "goose-pimples" ahead of the showdown with the Magpies, acknowledging that he has remained in the dugout for occasions such as the one in South Wales.

At a press conference, Warnock told reporters: "I already know it'd be 100 times anything I've done in my career to keep us up in the league. I'm in the game for days like tomorrow, I've got goose-pimples thinking about it now.

"The fans have been pivotal in my 8th promotion and I want to repay them with some enjoyment. At this stage of my career, and with the financial situation we're dealing with, it makes me more determined."

Newcastle also head into the match having suffered a defeat, with Tottenham Hotspur running out 2-1 victors at St James' Park.
