Bench role for former Norwich City keeper Marshall
Ex-Canaries keeper David Marshall looks set to face his former team-mates from the subs' bench tomorrow - as Cardiff City stick with a man who doesn't appear to know how to lose.
Tom Heaton took over from Marshall last month after a 2-0 defeat at Ipswich, and Cardiff haven't been beaten since.
In half a dozen appearances they have won five, including Tuesday's impressive 4-0 success at Leeds, to move right on QPR's shoulders at the top of the table.
Heaton has grabbed the chance with both hands and is a certain starter against the Canaries.
'I'm thoroughly enjoying myself – and loving the challenge,' he said.
Marshall – who left Carrow Road for Cardiff eight days after they were relegated in May, 2009 – now faces a fight to regain his place.
'One of us has to miss out,' said Heaton. 'We work well together and we drive each other on.
