Macclesfield Town v Cardiff City: Bluebirds set to rest entire first-team
Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay is set to rest every single one of his front-line stars for Saturday’s FA Cup trip to Macclesfield Town.
None of the Bluebirds’ first-team squad is expected to travel to their non-league opponents, with a host of youngsters and fringe players ready to be drafted in.
True, Macclesfield is from Conference but they dont have problems, just is Ryan Jackson (df 18/1) out. They will play with best posible squad. I will give chance to them, Cardiff has much more quality but when they play with best team. This are all youngsters adn players which didnt played so i dont see why hosts wouldnt make suprise. Remember Arsenal before few weeks, they are eliminated from league Cup by Bradford which is also 3 league above them (like in this game). And there is one difference, Arsenal played with best squad..
