TEAM NEWS

Cardiff boss Russell Slade hopes that a virus spreading around his team does not effect his team selection.

Defenders Fabio and Matt Connolly were hit by the illness, but goalkeeper David Marshall has resumed training after a bout with pneumonia.

Derby defender Jason Shackell and midfielder Jeff Hendrick are available after shaking off minor injuries.

Shackell had a groin problem while Hendrick returned from international duty with a shoulder complaint.
