Cardiff v Blackpool preview

Date published: Friday 24th April 2015 10:26

The former Millwall full-back lasted just 22 minutes of their 0-0 draw with Millwall last weekend before being replaced through injury and so Brazilian Fabio is on standby to line up against the Tangerines.

Centre-back Ben Turner is edging closer to a return to the matchday squad and may make the bench while Federico Macheda and Alex Revell will be assessed once more as they look to end their spells on the sidelines.

Cardiff have won just one home game since January.

Blackpool should have Miles Addison back in their squad for their final attempt to chalk up an away triumph this term.

The on-loan Bournemouth midfielder has a knee injury but has trained fully all week as he looks to make his first appearance since March.

Auxiliary right-back Tom Barkhuizen has been ruled out, though, because of a shin injury and he joins Tom Aldred (hamstring), Joe Lewis (ankle), Mark Waddington (foot) and Grant Hall (ankle) on the sidelines.

Should the Seasiders fail to pick up three points, they will become just the second team in the second tier to not win a single away game in an entire campaign, joining the 1989-90 Bradford team.
