It has already been a dramatic season for Cardiff City in the Championship with the club falling into a dire position under ex-head coach Paul Trollope as they plummeted towards the foot of the table.
But they now find themselves somewhat rejuvenated under new gaffer Neil Warnock.
The Bluebirds are still very much in a relegation fight as they hover precariously above the bottom three with a host of difficult fixtures coming up over the Christmas period before the January transfer window arrives.
This January will give Warnock the chance to bring in more of his own players after taking advantage of the free transfer market when he first joined to bring in the likes of Junior Hoilett, Marouane Chamakh, Sol Bamba and Keiran Richardson all within a week of his appointment.
However, as the prospect of incoming and outgoing transfers draws ever closer, there are a number of first team squad players in the City side that will be wanting to have more of an opportunity to show what they can do.
Here, Football League World writer Steve Day picks two players in the Bluebirds squad that he thinks should be pushing Warnock to give them more minutes on the pitch so they can prove themselves to the management and fans.
