Cardiff City Face Depleted Ipswich (Team News)

Cardiff City will leave it late to decide on the starting line-up today with a number of players facing late fitness tests ahead of the clash with Ipswich Town.


Full-backs Kevin McNaughton and Mark Kennedy are both carrying injuries with Comminges / Blake and Capaldi likely to fill in if they don't recover.


Jay Bothroyd (hamstring), Stuart Taylor (hip) and Michael Chopra (heel) will also face lte fitness tests with Eddie Johnson hoping for a start and Tom Heaton likely to play in goal.


Winger Chris Burke is likely to start given his impressive appearance from the bench. He could come in for Chopra with McCormack moving up-front.



Ipswich Town have a number of players missing. Welsh defender Ben Thatcher has a knee problem while David Wright has pulled a hamstring. Neither will feature for the Tractor Boys.


Gareth MacAuley (hamstring) and Jon Walters (ankle) are both rated doubtful. Luciano Civelli is out with a knee problem, Jordan Rhodes has a broken bone in hit foot.


Moritz Volz (groin) and Tommy Smith (ankle) are also unlikely to feature.
