THE arrival of Sito Castro's baby daughter has made Jim Magilton's selection problems for the Crystal Palace game today a little easier.

The 26-year-old Spaniard's girlfriend Tania delivered Lola yesterday morning and the full back has been left at home after a distinct lack of sleep.

That paves the way for David Wright to move across to right back and Alex Bruce returning in central defence after a two-match ban.

Magilton said: “It was a decision that has been taken out of my hands but family comes first.”

The next dilemma for the Town boss is whether to include Richard Naylor who has recovered from a badly-bruised toe, in place of stand-in skipper Fabian Wilnis who has been outstanding since his comeback.

Sito had been part of the defence that has kept clean sheets in the past two games, including the goalless draw at Stoke on Tuesday where he was man of the match, after going nearly three months without a start.

Along with Wilnis, Sito was set to go out on loan at the beginning of last month and could still move out when the emergency loan window opens on Wednesday.

Magilton said: “We would still look at letting them go on loan because they have had a taste of playing again. If they came to me after being left out again and said they wanted to carry on playing regularly then I wouldn't stand in their way providing we had enough cover.

“I know job satisfaction is zero if you are not playing.”
