Heaton Back For Cardiff City - Thankfully !

Cardiff City will have goalkeeper Tom Heaton back for the all important clash with Derby County tomorrow after the former Manchester United man recovered from a groin strain.

Heaton had established himself as the undisputed number one, after ousting David Marshall - also now injured after elbow surgery. The double injury blow left the Bluebirds with serious problems in the goalkeeping department and prompting a double loan move.

Stephen Bywater arrived from tomorrow's opponents Derby County but has failed to impress. It hasn't been any glaring errors, save for a rash decision to leave his line and gifting Millwall a late equaliser. Moreover, a lack of confidence and little meaningful contribution from the keeper has not helped our recent patchy form. He is ineligible for tomorrow's clash - a fact that will not be met with much disappointment from fans.

Welshman Jason Brown (Blackburn Rovers) is also available but has yet to feature for the Bluebirds and is known to lack height and dominate his box. With McNaughton's lack of height, a strong and dominant keeper would be a bonus.

New recruit Jlloyd Samuel is expected to start at left back, so the returrn of Heaton thankfully ensures we won't have two debutants in the back-five.

Hoepfulyl Heaton will re-discover his best form and can keep a clean sheet.
