Sheff Wed vs Cardiff City (Team News)

Cardiff City travel to the scene of last season's final day disaster as we face Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough. The Bluebirds have lost 3 of the last four games, scoring just once in the process.

Cardiff City will again be without Kevin McNaughton, Kelvin Etuhu (ankle) and Ross McCormack (groin) through injury but were boosted by the midweek return of Adam Matthews.

Midfielder Stephen McPhail seves the last of his 3 game suspension so Jones must select from Scimeca, Rae, Taiwo and Ledley for the midfield positions. Michael Chopra looks set to return in attack with Scimeca the likely man to drop out.


Sheffield Wednesday have had their own injury concerns of late but have welcomed back Richard Hinds, Richard Wood, Lee Beevers and Frankie Simek to full training giving their squad a stronger feel.

Etienne Esajas is hoping for a starting place having impressed from the bench while a familiar face also looks set to line-up against the Bluebirds - in the form of ex-Club captain Darren Purse. City fans will be hoping Michael Chopra can exploit Pursey's lack of pace and occasional lapses.
