West Brom v Cardiff (Team News)

Cardiff City have no new issues to contend with ahead of the clash with top-of-the-table West Brom tomorrow.


Michael Oakes will retain his place, keeping new arrival Peter Enckelman on the bench.

Otherwise it's as you were for Cardiff, although there will be a change on the bench as Steve MacLean completes a move to Plymouth Argyle. His place is likely to be taken by Darcy Blake.

Fowler (hip), Sinclair (knee), Feeney (ankle)and Scimeca (groin) are long term absentees for the Bluebirds.



CCFC (probable): Oakes, Capaldi, McNaughton, Johnson, Loovens, Whittingham, Ledley, McPhail(c), Rae, Hasselbaink, Parry.

Subs: Enckelman, Purse, Thompson, Ramsey, Blake.




Wet Brom manager Tony Mowbray has former Cardiff target Craig Beattie unavailable with a thigh injury while solid full-back Paul Robinson sits out the second game of his suspension.


Mowbray recalled Teixeria and Zoltan Gera for the cup win over Charlton, the misfield duo will hoe to keep their places but either Chris Brunt or Robert Koren could come into the starting XI.


Roman Bednar could make way for top scorer Kevin Phillips, rested midweek but in good scoring form for the Baggies.


WBA (probable): Kiely, Albrechtson, Hoefkens, Barnett, Pele, Gera, Brunt, Greening, Morrison, Miller, Phillips.


Subs (from): Koren, Steele, MacDonald, Teixeria, Bednar, Hodgkiss, Cesar.
