Cardiff City vs Blackpool (Latest Team News)

Cardiff City have few injuries to contend with as Blackpool visit CCS today in what will be a massive game for both clubs.

Mark Hudson is likely to be available again for City following a calf injury. However, Malky Mackay may yet opt not to risk his captain and continue with Anthony Gerrard in the heart of defense.

Key striker Kenny Miller has been suffering with a virus this week, but is hopeful of continuing to lead the Bluebirds' line. If declared unfit, Rudy Gestede or Joe Mason would likely come in - though Robert Earnshaw would also be desperate for a recall.



ikely to be missing for City however is Slovakian midfielder Filip Kiss. He has a thigh complaint and will be assessed prior to the game. Kiss has normally been a substitute of late, but if unavailable his place would likely go to Joe Ralls.

New signing Kadeem Harris will be hopeful of a place on the bench, but with only 5 substitutes permitted - he may not yet be ready to oust the likes of Joe Mason or Rudy Gestede as alternative attacking options.



Blackpool will be without the solid presence and experience of Ian Evatt after the defender picked up a suspension following a sending off. However, highly rated Liverpool centre-half Danny Wilson is set to step in.

The Seasiders may also be without another vastly experienced campaigner in midfielder Keith Southern. Southern is a doubt with an ankle injury which required 8 stitches whilst he has also recently undergone surgery to remove a testicular tumour.

Lomana LuaLua has been struggling with a hamstring problem but is expected to be available for the game.
