Cardiff City's Naylor vs Quinn Dilemma

Cardiff City boss Dave Jones will have left-back Lee Naylor available again for the home clash with Scunthorpe United tomorrow. The out-of-form ex-Celtic man was sent home from Swansea after falling ill on the morning of the game.

There had been calls to drop Naylor, after a disappointing run of form, but Kevin McNaughton provides the only experienced cover and was being used in central defence. The illness forced Jones' hand and he gave Dekel Keinan a fiery debut against Swansea City. The Israeli did well and would be very unlucky to miss out.

Mcnaughton suffered a hamstring injury, but could be fit. If so, he must start as he is so crucial to our side. He can feature on either side meaning that Quinn or Naylor will miss out.

Dave Jones is known for showing unrelenting faith in certain players, despite lack of form. Mark Hudson kept his place despite such form last season but has improved beyond recognition. That was emphasised by his decision to start Naylor against The Swans - the game could have turned out so differently had Nathan Dyer been up against Naylor - he has struggled badly against pacy, direct widemen of late.

Paul Quinn is not a Dave Jones favourite, and DJ would likely have little hesitation in dropping the Scotsman if he felt it appropriate. Quinn has filled in to good effect of late, but remains a fringe player and could be sacrificed to allow the inclusion of Naylor, potentially to gain some confidence against a struggling Scunthorpe outfit.

Darcy Blake's second half performance against Swansea suggests he is ready to fight for a full-back position, but that is unlikely to be this week with Jones probably set to stick with his usual suspects.
