Bothroyd Out, Heaton Recalled For Bluebirds

Bothroyd Out, Heaton Recalled For Bluebirds

Cardiff City are again without key striker Jay Bothroyd as the striker misses out with a hamstring niggle. Andy Keogh and Michael Chopra will continue in attack as City face Bristol City.

Craig Bellamy also returns after being rested midweek, he will line-up on the left, with Peter Whittingham moving over to the right. City are boosted by the return of Chris Burke to the bench.

The big news for the Bluebirds is the return of Tom Heaton from a cruciate knee problem that saw him miss the previous months action. Heaton had displaced Marshall as first choice, but only made the bench on his return. Marshall is not named in the squad with youngster Jordan Santiago providing cover from the bench.

Also missing from the squad is Gabor Gyepes, out-of-favour and being linked with a move to Championship rivals Crystal Palace.
