Malky Mackay has confirmed that his Cardiff side is still in need of 'two or three' new players ahead of the Premier League season.
The Bluebirds boss, who guided the Welsh outfit to the Premier League via the Championship title last season, has so far drafted in striker Andreas Cornelius and goalkeeper Simon Moore in the transfer window.
However, following Tuesday evening's 3-2 friendly defeat at League One Brentford, Mackay believes a number of new faces are still required to ensure the team is competitive enough to avoid immediate relegation.
He said on Sky Sports: "The group we have are at the fitness level we expect them to be at, so that's important. but at the same time I still need to add two or three players.
"We've got various plates spinning. We're working hard on it but they've got to come in and add to this group.
"We're looking at good players to come in and we're trying to improve in all areas."
Punters looking to use their free bet can back Mackay to bring in his top targets and ensure they avoid the drop while finishing above fellow Premier League new boys Hull City and Crystal Palace.
