Up to four players were unable to train fully due to illness, as Warnock targets a result which would help pull Cardiff away from the Championship relegation zone.

We were going to work on areas, and we're told you can't do that because he's missing and he's missing, and then we were going to work on other areas and he's missing and he's missing. In the end I might as well have gone for a bit of a sauna, a masssage somewhere, because it was a waste of time yesterday.

– Neil Warnock, Cardiff City Manager

Elsewhere the 68-year-old might decide not to risk striker Rickie Lambert after he missed last week's 0-0 draw with Brighton through injury.

Jazz Richards is another long term injury lay-off, but Lee Peltier could replace Matthew Connolly at right-back after serving a one-match suspension.
