Cardiff City have injury worries ahead of tonight’s trip to play West Brom with midfielder Joe Ledley ruled out today with his dodgy hip.

Ledley joins McPhail and Comminges(thigh) as definitely ruled out, while Jay Bothroyd is unfortunaltely suspended – a big blow.

Michael Chopra struggled with illness over the weekend, and will be assessed closer to kick off and Dave Jones will have to think long and hard about his formation so Gavin Rae, Ross McCormack and Kelvin Etuhu will be on stand-by and hoping to be selected.

Gabor Gyepes has recovered from his calf problem and will be fit to feature amongst the substitutes.


For West Brom, Luke Moore (thigh) and Jerome Thomas (hamstring) have withdrawn from the squad and will be missing. Roman Bednar is hopeful of a recall to the starting line-up.

More long term injury worries for the Baggies include: Midfielder Ishmael Miller (knee), striker James Morrison (heel) and experienced defender Neil Clement (knee).

Creative midfielder Robert Koren has had a hernia operation and is also out.
