Junior Hoilett says that Cardiff are "raring to go" ahead of Monday's Championship play-off semi-final clash with Fulham.

The Bluebirds were relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2018-19 season but have an opportunity to seal a top-flight return at the first time of asking.

The Welsh club won 3-0 at home to Hull on the final day of the campaign to seal a spot in the play-offs and will play Brentford or Swansea for a place in the Premier League if they can see off Fulham.

Everybody's ready and raring to go and will put everything on the line.

Hoilett debuted for Blackburn in 2007 and spent time at Queens Park Rangers before joining Cardiff in 2016.

The Canadian winger was an ever-present when the Bluebirds were promoted under Neil Warnock in 2017-18 and made 32 Premier League appearances last season.

The 30-year-old has featured in 41 games in the Championship this season, scoring seven goals and providing two assists.

Speaking to the BBC, Hoilett says he and his teammates have work to do but they are eager to seize their chance.

"We've worked hard to get here and still have a long way to go to reach our goal," he said. "We have good momentum going into the game, with three wins on the bounce, and we've got good spirit.

"Everybody's ready and raring to go and will put everything on the line to get to Wembley."

Cardiff are 2.90 to win the first leg of their play-off semi-final, with Fulham 2.70 and the draw 2.95.

The Bluebirds are 41.00 to be promoted with Brentford on offer at 1.53. Fulham are 2.50 to go up with Swansea 4.50.
