” SO WHERE DOES THIS LEAVE SLADE/CITY & THE PLAY-OFFS? ”
By Annis Abraham
So with Joe Mason looking likely to leave this week and Slade saying the play-offs are what his target is.
Where does that leave Cardiff City upfront and if we need back up due to injuries/suspensions etc?
And also with Alex Revell told he can leave and the club willing to listen to offers for Federico Macheda, the move would see Russell Slade significantly light on attacking options and restricted by low-wage loan moves as part of the embargo placed on the club under Financial Fair Play rules.
Recent weeks have seen Anthony Pilkington play in a Strikers role with recent loan signing from Feyenoord, midfielder Lex Immers, also pushed forward when he made his debut in last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Rotherham.
Pilkington also is known to be plagued by injuries but when fit can do a good job as recently seen by City fans.
