Team For Cardiff?
For whatever reason, lengthy injury lists have become a common theme of Nigel’s tenure as Rams boss.
With Theo and O.B becoming the latest first teamers to bite the dust, Wednesdays team selection looks an interesting one.
What I think we should do and what I think we will do are probably two different things.
Whilst there is talk of patching/drugging O.B up for Cardiff, I think he’ll probably miss out with Ando stepping in at centre half. Crofty wasn’t involved for the reserves last night, so I expect him to come in at right back. Kilbane did nothing particularly wrong on Saturday but I think asking him to do a full game against dangerous opposition like Cardiff is a gamble.
Most of the midfield will stay as is, with the main question being whether to move Wardy up top.
I would personally start with Wardy wide and bring Ball in for a well overdue start with Maguire. If that doesn’t work, we can change it around and introduce Bennett or Cwyka. However I think Clough is more likely to move Wardy up top and start with Doyle wide, who he clearly rates.
In any event, whilst we can definitely win this game, a draw would be another point we didn’t get last season and I definitely think we can beat Posh on Saturday.
Come on you Rams!
