Cardiff City are suffering somewhat of a mini-injury crisis brought on by some bad luck and a small squad.

Capaldi (knee) and Scimeca (ankle) remain sidelined but Mark Kennedy returns and will fill the left back slot vacated by Miguel Comminges who is suspended.

Darren Purse had his ban overturned so is available but striker Ross McCormack suffered a relapse of a hamstring injury during training and will not make his comeback. Fellow striker Jay Bothroyd is out for another week with a similar problem.

A mystery bug has continued to disrupt preparations though is not expected to rule any further players out after Ledley and McNaughton recovered.

For Crystal Palace: Kepper Julian Speroni should recover from a knee injury and will be available.

Craig Beattie has extended his loan with the Eagles and is expected to lead the line again against the Bluebirds.

  • looks like usual suspects then!
    heaton, johnson purse mcnaughton and kennedy if fit
    rae and mcphail in the centre ledley left and probably whitts right
    chops and e.johnson with parry on bench or poss start for johnson.
    likely that eddie will continue i wud have thought.
    we be gr8 if he starts turning out some performances however i cannot see it myself and appears to be a very poor loan acquisition if we are paying him what the rumour says!
    around £15000 a week is reported does anyone know the exact figures please???

  • around £18k per week is the figure I’ve heard from several places. I dont think the club have made it public though – as you might expect !
