Cardiff City have no new injury concerns ahead of this game with full-backs Kevin McNaughton and Tony Capaldi ruled out through injury.

Attacker Kelvin Etuhu is out with ankle ligament damage but has made good progress and is nearing a return to training.

Stephen McPhail has suffered no adverse reaction following his return after neck surgery and will continue in midfield while Jay Bothroyd is set to play on despite a fracture to his kneecap.

Gabor Gyepes is back following the birth of his baby, and is set to feature amongst the Bluebirds subs.



ottingham Forest have injury concerns, most notably in attack with Dexter Blackstock (knee) and former Cardiff favourite Robert Earnshaw both doubtful.

Club captain James Perch was hopeful of a comeback after a troublesome calf injury, but he has suffered a set-back and will not play. Fellow defender Julien Bennett is also ruled out through injury.

Forest do have Guy Moussi available following suspension. He scored in his previous appearance – and was promply sent off for celebrating. However, the midfielder is available to face Cardiff and is expected to start.
