CARDIFF City boss Neil Warnock praised Joe Hart's performance against his side - but said the Burnley goalkeeper should forget about trying to earn an England recall.

Hart, who has won 75 caps for his country, has impressed since his £4million move from Manchester City in the summer and he turned in another fine performance in south Wales, making key saves from Kenneth Zohore and Josh Murphy.

"I thought it epitomised the whole game that Joe Hart got man of the match, even I was clapping the save from Murphy. It was a fabulous save," said Warnock.

But Warnock believes England's style no longer suits Hart, especially with the way the Clarets play, with the Bluebirds boss taking issue with Sean Dyche's comments about Cardiff's direct style.

"I think he should just let it go now really and concentrate on enjoying his game," Warnock said of Hart's Three Lions ambitions.

"Gareth doesn’t play like Burnley do, it’s a different ball game and I think Jordan Pickford is better at playing it out from the back and being a sweeper.

"I didn’t see that very often today. I had to laugh when I heard Sean saying about our long ball game, I don’t think they kept it more than two seconds at the back."

Warnock also felt Cardiff should have had a penalty when Callum Paterson's effort struck Matt Lowton's arm.

"We didn’t get the rub of the green, when you look at Patterson's overhead kick, he has his hands up there and for me it’s a clear penalty," he said.
