Cardiff City are waiting on the fitness of two key players ahead of tonight`s Championship clash with Leicester City as Captain Craig Bellamy bids to return from a swollen knee, and influential midfielder Seyi Olofinjana hopes to continue his fine form in the anchor role. He was withdrawn in the second half on Saturday as a precaution, both players will face late fitness tests.
Gavin Rae could replace Olofinjana if he fails the test, while the inclusion of Bellamy could also free up Jason Koumas to move into central midfield. Alternatively, Jones could name a 4 man midfield with Bellamy joining Keogh up-front for the Bluebirds.
Definitely missing from the game are Michael Chopra (ankle ligaments), Danny Drinkwater (ankle) and Jay Bothroyd (calf). Chops is out for another few weeks, but Drinkwater and Jay hope to be aback in action by the weekend. David Marshall (elbow) and Kevin McNaughton (hamstring) felt no ill effects after their returns to fitness and will play.
Leicester City have concerns over the fitness of goalkeeper Chris Weale (shoulder) meaning on-loan keeper Carl Ikeme or Conrad Logan will deputise. Defender Miguel Vitor is back in contentionafter a leg injury but Lloyd Dyer and Matty Fryatt are back to full fitness after their own problems prior to the International break.
LCFC had hoped to hand Kamil Zayatte a debut, but his loan from Hull City appears to have stalled. No such problems for Japanese International midfielder Yuki Abe, who is expected to make his debut for the Foxes after acquiring a visa while Danny N`Guessan and Steve Howard are hoping for a re-call to the starting XI.
Aleksandar Tunchev remains a long term absentee after undergoing 3 operations to help a serious knee problem.
