Cardiff, 12th in the table, are just 5 points off the play off places but they have been very inconsistent this season and will head into the game with 2 wins, 2 defeats and a draw in their last 5. Russell Slade’s side have improved since the former Grimsby manager however they have failed to score or win in their last two games, losing to Bolton and drawing with Birmingham.

Slade, like most managers at top clubs, has had to contend with the fact that most of his squad has been with their national team during the break although the manager would have been pleased to see Mats Daehli getting a run out for Norway.

The midfielder has struggled for time this season in Wales but got some much needed game time during the International break and could feature this weekend.

Bruno Manga is a doubt for the game with a muscle strain and will undergo a late fitness test however Kenwyne Jones could return after missing the last two games on compassionate leave. Anthony Pilkington will head into the game in good spirits after his goal-scoring appearance for the Republic of Ireland.

On-loan West Ham star Ravel Morrison is likely to be omitted from the squad by Slade while long-term absentee Kagisho Dikgacoi is out.

Reading for their part have also struggled for consistency with 3 defeats and 2 wins in their last 5 games.

Nigel Adkins will be without Hope Akpan while Anton Ferdinand is close to a return to action having resumed training.
