Cardiff's McPhail Misses Chasetown

Cardiff's McPhail Misses Chasetown

Cardiff City midfielder Stephen McPhail will be suspended for the weekend's trip to The Scholar's Ground for the FA Cup 3rd round match against Chasetown.


McPhail picked up back-to-back yellow cards against Watford and Preston, making 5 overall this season and after a 7 day period is banned for 1 match automatically.



In a way it's good news for Cardiff, McPhail on his day is a hugely influential player and he has played all of Cardiff's games over the exhausting festive period. A rest will help, and he will not miss any league action while he sits out the ban.



Dave Jones looks likely to field a strong side, in fact almost full strength so could draft in Aaron Ramsey or Darcy Blake in midfield.


The other option is a midfield re-shuffle, involving Ledley in the middle, Whittingham swapping to the left and Paul Parry reverting to right wing. That would mean a start up-front for either Steve MacLean or Steve Thompson.
