Cardiff City Face Injury Dilemmas Pre-Bristol City

Cardiff City Face Injury Dilemmas Pre-Bristol City

Cardiff City have seen no let up in their injury crisis as the treatment room remains full at Ninian Park.


The International break provided a welcome break and chance for several first team squad members to recover from injury. However, this has not happened and Dave Jones will need to name some inexperienced players after no re-enforcements arrived.


Tony Capaldi and Riccy Scimeca remain sidelined and will definately miss out. Darcy Blake (eye), Mark Kennedy (hamstring) and Gavin Rae (knee) are all returning towards fitness but rated doubtful.


In addition, Joe Ledley played two difficult games, including a long trip to Russia while Ross McCormack was also in action for Scotland. Both will be weary after a tough week.


Probable Starting XI:


Heaton, McNaughton, Comminges, Purse, Johnson, Whittingham, Parry, McPhail, Ledley, Bothroyd, McCormack.


Subs: Enckelman, Gyepes, Johnson


Jon Brown and any players returning to fitness could take the final two positions on the bench.
