After loosing Heidar Helguson against Leicester, Nathan Ellington against Reading and three players on the eve of the defeat against Coventry, Malky has selection headaches for Cardiff.
With Ross Jenkins and loanees Lansbury and Cathcart ill and unable to start against Coventry, Don Cowie came off with stomach complaints whilst Lee Hodson also had to be subbed off late on the hand young Eddie Oshodi his Hornets bow.
Scott Severin did return to the bench though, but Heidar Helguson is still anything up to two weeks away from a return. Meanwhile as reported by VitalWatford earlier in the week, Jay DeMerit is out due to an eye infection. There is no time-scale on that problem.
The good news? Nathan Ellington is back after suspension!
