Darcy Deputises For Doncaster Test

Darcy Deputises For Doncaster Test

Cardiff City are without key full-back Kevin McNaughton for today's visit to face Doncaster Rovers. Donny look in trouble at the bottom of the Championship table, but are in good form - especially at home.

As expected, Darcy Blake is again asked to deputise in place of McNaughton - getting the nod ahead of Paul Quinn.

The only other change for City is the return of David Marshall in goal, with Tom Heaton dropping to the bench having featured in the past two games - both in Cup clashes.

Once again, there is no place for Robert Earnshaw on the Cardiff City bench, so in the absence of Rudy Gestede (ankle injury) - the Bluebirds have no striking options to call upon. Joe Mason will start behind Kenny Miller, but could be pushed further upfield if we need to chase the game.
