Manager Neil Harris has talked about how pleased he was with the impact of the substitutes in the midweek game over Wigan and he’s turned his eye to Cardiff.

Speaking to the official site following the game, and moving on from his general reaction to the victory six pointer, Harris went on to talk about Nicky Bailey and Magaye Gueye more directly given the impact they had on the game.

Bailey replaced the injuried Shaun Williams in the first half, before Gueye came on and scored once more for the club following his return to first team duties.

With Cardiff next up on the horizon this weekend, Harris said that he felt very fortunate to have these kind of options available to him because everybody is doing their part regardless of whether they start or come on during the game.

‘In the modern game you need impact subs. A lot of football all over the world is stay in the game and then unleash your subs to make a difference. Magaye Gueye has certainly got that ability. He has got some terrific talent and it is just about getting the best out of him. The game was made for Nicky, just like Charlton was. He’s just a winner; a leader. I’m so fortunate that if you need to make a substitution because of an injury then you have got the likes of Nicky Bailey to come on and change a game.’

As for the injury to Williams he is a doubt for the game against Cardiff, and Harris has admitted he has some selection headaches as he’ll obviously be without suspended Ed Upson now as well.

‘He walked in on crutches, as a precaution. Obviously anybody who walks in on a Tuesday night game on crutches is struggling for Saturday. I have got some good players in my squad who can step in. I had 24 fit first team players to choose from tonight, and that`s excluding a very talented under-21 side who are unbeaten in nine games. So we have got depth in the squad. Sometimes one players` misfortune is another ones gain, and that may be the case on Saturday.’
