Millwall vs Cardiff City (Team News)

Cardiff City have no new injury worries ahead of tonight's trip to face Millwall with only Ben Turner of the likely matchday squad the only doubt.

Turner has a foot injury, that was found to be worst than first thought. He has now missed three games and the International break, with Matthew Connelly deputising. Turner's injury remains slight, but he is again facing tests today and will not be risked.

Stephen McPhail (hamstring), Rudy Gestede (knee) and Robert Earnshaw (foot) are all ruled out, but would not have been in Malky's plans for this game anyway.

The final fitness related issue is whether Craig Bellamy will play any part. He returned from a calf injury to devastating effect on Saturday, unleashing several wicked crosses and smashing a free-kick home just minutes after replacing Craig Noone. He has not played much recently, and wont be risked unless passed fully fit.



Millwall will be without midfielders Tamika Mkandawire (knee) and Liam Feeney (ankle) who have both been forced to sit out lengthy spells. Another major doubt is over full-back Jack Smith who has a thigh strain but is close to a return.

Veteran defender Paul Robinson will be assessed by Kenny Jackett's team to make sure he suffered no ill effects after recently returning to action following a hernia operation over the summer. Fellow defender Karleigh Osborne bore the brunt of his manager's frustration during their heavy defeat to Hull - he made way at half-time and may be the fall-guy if Jackett changes any personnel for tonight.

Kiwi striker Chris Wood will be available after joing on loan from West Brom while former Cardiff City loanee Andy Keogh is likely to start for the Lions with his movement and intelligence will pose probelms for Hudson and either Turner / Connelly.
