Cardiff Left Selection Issues

Cardiff Left Selection Issues


The double injury blow to Cardiff City suffered during their third successive win of Friday leaves manager Dave Jones with somewhat of a problem.

The regular left-back Kevin McNaughton, and his understudy Joe Ledley (normally a midfielder) are both doubtful with concussion and a knee problem respectively. Should neither make the forthcoming game with Coventry, who should Jones turn to to help continue the good run?


A poll is currently open HERE when you can cast your vote and opinion on the subject, also adding your own options if preferred.

The most likely solutions are:

Peter Whittingham

The winger has played full-back for Aston Villa and filled in on Friday is the unfamiliar role. He didnt look entirely comfortable but has some experience and would surely do a job.


Kerrea Gilbert

The on-loan youngster played lef-back during last season's Arsenal injury crisis and impressed. Although he favours the right, Gilbert could fill in on the left with Gunter at right-back.


Paul Parry

A left-footer with pace and reasonable in the air, some suggested in previous years that Parry may be more suited to a defensive role but looks an outside choice to fill in.


Joe Jacobson

A talented youngster with bags of potential, JJ could get his chance after impressing for the reserves and in a recent loan spell at Accrington Stanley. A natural left-back, he could follow in Gunter's footstep's in Jones puts his faith in the rookie.

Emergency loan

An alternative to the selection issue involves the opening of a new loan window on 8th Feb, 2 days before the game. A loan player could be drafter in for a month to cover the absence, similar to James Chambers' loan earlier in the season, who did an excellent job for the Bluebirds.



A difficult decision ahead for Dave Jones then, with any one a possibility. He may already have his eye on a suitable loan player but is unlikely to go for one less well suited than any players currently available.

Clubs may be more willing to part with players on loan now the windows shut. I'd definately ask about Chambers, looked a class act
