Bluebirds boss to name strong XI
Cardiff boss Neil Warnock has vowed to name a strong starting XI for Saturday’s FA Cup tie with Gillingham.
The Bluebirds’ main priority is to avoid relegation from the Premier League although Warnock is refusing to weaken his side drastically for Saturday’s trip to Priestfield.
Warnock admits he will bring in a couple of fringe players to freshen things up and has vowed to take a “strong squad” to Kent.
His comments will provide hope for goalkeeper Alex Smithies and winger Nathaniel Mendez-Laing as they aim to claim rare starting berths.
