Cape Town - Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock says he is hoping to add three players to his squad in January as he aims to keep the Bluebirds in the Premier League.
The newly-promoted English top-flight outfit are yet to win this season and find themselves in 19th position, after making their worst start to a league campaign since 1964.
Warnock admits he has a tough job ahead to keep the Bluebirds up and he is hoping to reinforce his squad in January.
"It's the biggest challenge of my career, we have to find a way of getting results until January," Warnock told BBC Sport Wales.
"It has been a pretty amazing ride really, a lot of memorable times and probably as difficult a job as I have ever had in my career, really.
"We've got there (the Premier League) too quick though, we've been victims of our own success.
"Every few months we've jumped up two steps, rather than one.
"You can't say no to the Premier League though. The bookies have already written us off... but we can win games at this level.
"It is alright to say Vincent (Tan) should put more money in, but he's spent a fortune already.
"We need to do the best we can. Let's get more results and stay in and around the group until January and then Vincent I think will let us have two or three players."
And it doesn’t get any easier for Warnock’s charges as they travel to Wembley for a Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur.
Kick-off is at 16:00 on Saturday.
