Cardiff could make a change in goal for the visit of fellow Sky Bet Championship strugglers Leeds.
The inexperienced Ben Wilson has conceded six goals in successive defeats to Norwich and Preston, and Bluebirds boss Paul Trollope says he “has a decision” on whether to stick with the youngster, with new signings Ben Amos and Brian Murphy waiting in the wings.
Peter Whittingham has been a surprise omission for the last two matches and could return in midfield, but injured duo Joe Bennett and Stuart O’Keefe remain absent.
Trollope is mulling over whether to change his 5-3-2 formation with Cardiff having dropped into the bottom three in midweek and full-back Jazz Richards might be recalled.
Leeds skipper Liam Bridcutt hopes to shake off a foot injury in time to lead his side and Kemar Roofe is expected to return to contention.
Midfielder Bridcutt was forced out of the midweek win against Blackburn after taking a knock, while forward Roofe missed out due to a calf strain.
Head coach Garry Monk has no other new injury or suspension worries but defender Gaetano Berardi is still working his way back from a hamstring injury.
Striker Chris Wood is pushing for a recall to the starting line-up after scoring on Tuesday night as are centre-half Liam Cooper and midfield pair Alex Mowatt and Kalvin Phillips.
