Much to ponder for Warnock
Selection will be centred around who is mentally right to play when Cardiff City take on Arsenal at the Emirates on Tuesday night.

Warnock said: "We feel we’ve got to go more regarding who we think will get more out of it than probably the team that we would have picked."
