Pen Pic:  
Niblett was a solid defender, good in the air and rarely found out of position, although sometimes capable of some lapses in judgment. Missed crucial parts of the trying 99/00 relegation campaign with knee trouble, and more than a few people have suggested his absence owes something to lacking determination to help out a struggling young team. Did not really cover himself in glory following his return to the side in February where his sending off and conceded penalty proved crucial in a 2-1 defeat at Newport, but did seem more like his old self by the end of the season. Ended the season as one of three players taking the club to an FA tribunal for failing to fulfill their contractual obligations, and is still in dispute with the club over a final settlement despite moving on to Rugby United.
On form Niblett was a key performer, a man marker who stays close to his forward and added a robust physical presence to the back line. Came to City with the "experienced and reliable" tag having played most of his career in the Conference, staying for 5 seasons at Telford where he played with Fergie, before moving to Hednesford for 20,000.
