Cardiff City vs Coventry City (Team News)

Cardiff City face Coventry City tonight and despite having options, Malky Mackay is set to largely keep faith with his under-par Bluebirds.

A worry for City is the doubt over key frontman Kenny Miller, who has a sore hamstring. Despite not finding the net in 12 games, Miller remains an integral member of the starting XI and has a big role to play.

If Miller is not available, Joe Mason could operate in attack, while Robert Earnshaw would dearly love a re-call to the starting line-up. Fortunately for the Bluebirds, towering striker Rudy Gestede has declared himself fit and ready to play after a hamstring injury - his height and unpredictability could prove a huge asset.

Steve McPhail has returned following illness, while Filip Kiss will hope to make the squad after feeling unwell prior to the 0-0 draw with Burnley.



Coventry City are without midfielder Carl Baker who has a torn hamstring and looks set to miss the rest of the season.

Livewire Gary McSheffrey has recently had a thigh problem, but returned to action this week. Striker Cody McDonald returned to the bench only following his groin strain and may again miss out. It's a similar story for David Bell, who is yet to fully recover from his groin problem.

The Sky Blues remain without long term absentees Hermann Hreidarsson (shoulder) and Richard Wood (knee).
