Cardiff City: Strikers for Saturday?

Cardiff City: Strikers for Saturday?

Cardiff City boss Dave Jones has the unenviable task of choosing which strikers to play against in-form Sunderland and score the goals to lift The Bluebirds back into the play-off places this weekend.

The current poll on this site allows you to vote as to your preference.

Cardiff City and Championship top scorer Michael Chopra is out, sidelined for up to 4 weeks with a hamstring pull, leaving Jones with a tricky choice. In the Bluebirds team, Steve Thomspon is the next highest scorer but with just 6 goals despite starting nearly every game.

Warren Feeney, recently signed on loan from Luton Town, is the most likely replacement for Chopra and he will partner the experienced Thompson up front. Feeney however has struggled for goals this season with just two league goals for the Hatters all campaign.

Jason Byrne could also start, with Feeney on the bench. The Irish striker, cousin of Tottenham Hotspur's Robbie Keane, was prolific in the Eircom league and scored on his debut after moving to Cardiff in January. Since then he has failed to make an impression and has struggled to adapt to the pace and physicality of the Championship. Byrne's partnership with Thompson has been less than convincing thus far, but they have played together while Feeney will be making his first appearance for the club.

Feeney has had precious little time to spend accustoming himself to his new club and team-mates having been on International duty this week with Northern Ireland.

The poll can be found on the right hand side of this page, close to the bottom.

A.N.Other refers to your choice of Matt Green, Kevin Campbell, Iwan Redan or Andrea Feretti. Click HERE to specify which.
