    At least we'll get it over with in 1 go. Still not sure whether to buy a match pass, might rely on a dodgy stream.

    Well it'll probably be Bamba & Nelson at centre back so it'll be a fun watch

    Bamba injured, as is Flint and Morrison.

    Wales online suggest the following four possibilities to partner Nelson:

    Firstly, and perhaps the one which fits most naturally, is Greg Cunningham. The Republic of Ireland international, who is more at home at left back, has played there many times before and could slot straight in.

    He has found game time hard to come by this season, though, owing to a hamstring injury, the latest in a long line of injury troubles over the past 12 months for the defender. However, if match fit, this could be an opportunity for him to shine.

    The two other left backs, Joe Bennett and Joel Bagan, are also in consideration to fill that berth.

    While Bagan perhaps offers a height advantage at 6ft 3ins, Bennett has more experience of senior football, a quality which cannot be underestimated at centre back.

    Lastly, however, there is Will Vaulks.

    Vaulks ain't disciplined enough to play CB - We'd concede at least two penalties before him getting sent off.

    Even better!

    Surely there's a centre back in the academy?

    I was surprised to read how often Vaulks played CB earlier in his career. The other bit of the quote from the Wales Online article above:

    Lastly, however, there is Will Vaulks.

    The Wales international, who usually patrols the middle of the pitch, played at centre back 62 times for Falkirk and on a handful of occasions for his former club Rotherham.

    He, in fact, has far greater experience in the middle of a back four than any of the above and is thought to be considered as a real candidate to partner Nelson at Forest.


    Whatever option Harris goes for against Forest, it will be a real dogs breakfast of a team selection.

    Cardiff City, using the academy?

    Got a career in stand up planned?

    Gun to my head, I'd go Vaulks Nelson Cunningham, with Bennett and Bacuna as wing backs.
