Cardiff vs Burnley (team news)


Cardiff City will be without defender Glenn Loovens (foot) and midfielder Riccy Scimeca (hamstring). Simon Walton is suspended for the next five games after picking up his third red card of the season against Sheffield Wednesday.

In the absence of Scimeca and Walton, Cardiff boss Dave Jones faces a selection dilemma in central midfield. He may play Joe Ledley or Kevin McNaughton there but it is widely expected that youngster Darcy Blake will be given an opportunity.

Both Darren Purse and Michael Chopra, despite not being one hundred percent fit, will start the game.

For Burnley, defender Stephen Foster (achilles) will remain unavailable and former Cardiff loanee Alan Mahon (groin) will miss out on a return to Ninian Park.
