Cardiff will be without striker Andreas Cornelius for their Barclays Premier League fixture against Everton.
The Danish forward, a £7.5million summer signing from FC Copenhagen, injured the ankle which had troubled him during pre-season in the midweek Capital One Cup victory over Accrington, and is set to be sidelined for two weeks.
Boss Malky Mackay is likely to revert to the same starting line-up that claimed a stunning victory over Manchester City last weekend, having made 11 changes for the League Cup fixture.
Everton boss Roberto Martinez is expected to bring back all his big names for Saturday's trip to Cardiff.
Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini are amongst those who were left out of the midweek Capital One Cup win over Stevenage, although it was the latter man who got the winner after being introduced from the bench.
Darron Gibson (knee) and Antolin Alcaraz (hamstring) have returned to training but are not expected to be involved.
Cardiff: Marshall, Connolly, Taylor, Caulker, Hudson, Turner, Whittingham, Medel, Campbell, Brayford, Kim, Smith, Gestede, Noone, Gunnarsson, Mutch, Mason, Conway, Maynard, McNaughton, Lewis, Moore, Bellamy, John.
Everton: Howard, Robles, Heitinga, Hibbert, Coleman, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, Mirallas, Naismith, Deulofeu, Fellaini, Pienaar, Stones, Osman, Barkley, Jelavic, Kone, Anichebe.
