Ipswich vs Cardiff City (Team News)

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones looks likely to rotate his weary squad for tonight's visit to Ipswich Town.


It's difficult to predict who will miss out but Riccy Scimeca may well start as well as Steve Thompson in attack.


Paul Parry is out with the hamstring problem that saw him miss out at Wembley, while Kevin McNaughton was withdrawn at half time with a back problem and will not feature.


That leaves a potential problem at right back for City, Darcy Blake is nearing a return after a groin strain so either he, Aaron Ramsey or Trevor Sinclair will cover.


If Blake is fit, Scimeca and Ramsey may start in midfield although much depends on individual fatigue levels within the squad.


Robbie Fowler (hip) and Warren Feeney (ankle) are both out.





For Ipswich, manager Jim Magilton will again be without Pable Counago (suspended) and Shefki Kuqi (hamstring) as the Tracot Boys look for their first goal in 200 minutes of action. That means that former Bluebird Alan Lee will line up against his former club.



Midfielder David Norris (foot) and defender Richard Naylor (neck) are both ruled out.


Gary Roberts and Tommy Miller are both puching hard for re-calls to the starting XI and Magilton may be forced to change things after a disappointing defeat last time out and having targetted this game as a must win clash.
