Cardiff City boss Dave Jones faces some tricky decisions ahead of the end-of-season clash with Sheffield Wednesday but happily those deceision centre around whether to rest / rotate certain squad members ahead of the play-offs.

Gavin Rae, Solomon Taiwo and Miguel Comminges are all ruled out after undergoing surgery, otherwise the Bluebirds have a fully fit squad.

Mark Hudson (ankle), Kelvin Etuhu (ankle), Kevin McNaughton (thigh) and Gabor Gyepes (hamstring) have all returned to full traing only recently and all are short of gametime. Hudson has not featured for months and would love a chance to accrue some match sharpness though Jones will be reluctant to change his in-form defence.

Paul Quinn has also returned from a hamstring problem while teenage striker Josh Magennis has made startling progress after breaking his leg and is back in training. However, he is unlikely to feature and will instead be looking to next season.


Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Sean McAllister has returned after a stomach injury, while Lewis Buxton (hamstring) and Eddie Nolan (bruise) are likely to be available.

Midfielder Tommy Miller looks set to miss out with a calf injury.
