Gary Medel has joined Cardiff's absentee list for Saturday's Premier League visit of Hull, who welcome back James Chester and Liam Rosenior.

The Chilean midfielder came off at half-time in the FA Cup defeat by Wigan with a thigh injury and is not fit for the weekend.

Craig Bellamy will serve the final game of a three-match suspension and Mark Hudson (hamstring) is out for the season, but Kenwyne Jones and Fabio return after being cup-tied last time out.

Hull could welcome back defenders James Chester and Liam Rosenior for the trip to Wales.

Chester has been out for a month with a hamstring injury and full-back Rosenior (thigh) has missed the last two matches, but both are back in contention.

Sone Aluko could also play a part having managed 90 minutes in Monday's FA Cup draw at Brighton, but Robbie Brady (groin) and Paul McShane (ankle) are long-term absentees.

Cardiff squad: Marshall, Taylor, Caulker, Turner, Whittingham, Jones, Campbell, Kim, Smith, Eikrem, Noone, Gunnarsson, Mutch, Cowie, McNaughton, Theophile-Catherine, Daehli, Lewis, Berget, Fabio, Zaha, Cala.

Hull squad: McGregor, Harper, Davies, Bruce, Figueroa, Rosenior, Chester, Huddlestone, Elmohamady, Meyler, Quinn, Livermore, Boyd, Fryatt, Koren, Sagbo, Aluko, Long, Jelavic.
