Cardiff City are currently in a good patch of form and have hopes that they can reach the top six of the Championship before the end of the campaign.
The Bluebirds are now just four points off a place in the play-offs, and face a tricky test when they travel up to Stoke City this weekend.
There have been a number of standout performers since Neil Harris took over, including Lee Tomlin, Curtis Nelson and Marlon Pack. Cardiff have scored 48 goals this season, although the striker’s in the side haven’t netted many.
One man who may feel like he should have scored more is Danny Ward. He has suffered with injuries throughout the campaign meaning he has featured in just 19 league games. Alongside that, when he is playing he is on his own up top, not his natural position.
Ward’s contract is expiring at the end of the campaign, and it’s not known whether the club will offer him a new deal heading into next season.
Football League World asked Facebook group, Only One Cardiff City, whether the striker should be given a new deal.
Here are some of the replies…
Can you get 100% in this Cardiff quiz? Have a go now!
Richard Morris: No unable to keep him fit enough due to injuries. Not a 90 min player.
Julian Riddiford: Yes he should be handed a new contract for next season.
Anthony Burns: What for? Injury prone and not good enough.
Julian Thomas: No way in the world but City will no doubt.
Chris Hipkins: Not if we want to progress, give Connolly another 3 years though!
Stephen Heard: We can’t carry injury prone players unfortunately when he’s not injured, class player, but can’t seem to not get injured after a run of games so a no for me.
Luke Davies: Rather get rid what’s point paying him round 15k mark to sit on the bench. He’s not suited to 1 up top that we play.
