Peter Odemwingie could make his Cardiff City debut on Saturday as the Bluebirds travel to the KC Stadium to face Hull City.
The Nigerian international completed his switch from West Bromwich Albion on transfer deadline day and is likely to be named among the Cardiff substitutes.
Manager Malky Mackay is sweating over the fitness of his first choice goalkeeper after David Marshall suffered a hip injury while on international duty with Scotland during the week.
Mackay looks set to turn to back-up Joe Lewis should Marshall not recover in time for the KC Stadium clash.
Meanwhile, there are similar concerns for Hull City boss Steve Bruce with goalkeeper Allan McGregor facing a late fitness test following a groin problem.
The Scotland international has been unavailable for this month's World Cup qualifiers but Bruce is boosted by the news that striker Sone Aluko should be fit to play after a hamstring injury.
Maynor Figueroa made a late return from international duty, having represented Honduras, but should feature, while Egyptian loan signing Gedo's visa is still pending.
