Cardiff City travel to Barnsley this weekend looking to build on the win and draw over the Easter period that saw us climb vback into the play-off positions.
However, if City are to record an invaluable win it will be somewhat against the odds in terms of the depleted attacking line available to Malky Mackay.
Kenny Miller's return to goalscoring form against Watford was all the more remarkable given that he looked certain to miss the game after limping off against Boro following a heavy and unpunished flying tackle by home 'keeper Steele. Accoring to Mackay, a gash so deep the bone was visible was left in Miller's knee so to play just 2 days later seemed unthinkable. Such is our desperation, and Miller's determination - he did manage to pass a fitness test.
Despite his goal, Miller must remain a doubt for the Barnsley clash, though obviously his recovery would be a major boost. There is a distinct lack of attacking alternatives with both Joe Mason and Rudy Gestede missing from Monday's squad due to their respective injuries. Both are close to a return, but are also doubtful for the Tykes trip.
Potentially, that could leave just Robert Earnshaw available, with winger Craig Conway also now confirmed to miss the rest of the season.
Cardiff City have struggled to break teams down this season, and Barnsley usually set-up in a robust 4-5-1 formation. Hopefully some of Cardiff City's 'walking wounded' will be fit to lead the line and score the goals needed to win this difficult looking fixture.
