Striker Craig Bellamy returns to the Cardiff squad for the Barclays Premier League clash at Tottenham on Sunday after serving a three-match suspension.

Following the humiliating 4-0 home defeat to Hull last weekend, boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has vowed to make changes, and Bellamy is almost certain to be amongst them.

Gary Medel could return after a recent lay-off with a thigh injury, whilst fellow midfielder Jordon Mutch is available again following a hamstring problem.

Tottenham head coach Tim Sherwood has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Cardiff's visit.

Brazil midfielder Sandro is in line to make his first league appearance under Sherwood having started Thursday night's Europa League win over Dnipro following a calf injury while Kyle Walker may also feature having returned to training after recovering from a hip problem.

Vlad Chiriches and Erik Lamela (both back) remained sidelined while Jermain Defoe will now link up with Toronto FC.

Spurs: Lloris, Friedel, Gomes, Walker, Naughton, Dawson, Vertonghen, Fryers, Veljkovic, Dembele, Capoue, Sandro, Lennon, Eriksen, Bentaleb, Paulinho, Chadli, Townsend, Sigurdsson, Adebayor, Soldado, Kane.

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