Jones to monitor Bluebirds trio

27 December 2010 04:00
Cardiff will check on a trio of players as they make the Bank Holiday trip to Watford. Striker Jay Bothroyd did not recover from a hamstring injury in time to feature against Coventry on Boxing Day and he will be assessed ahead of the game. Midfielders Chris Burke and Danny Drinkwater were also missing against the Sky Blues as they were laid low with a virus which has swept through the Welsh club in recent weeks and they will also be monitored. Defender Chris Riggott managed his first appearance in eight months on Sunday, lasting just over an hour and it remains to be seen whether he can manage another appearance so soon. The win over Aidy Bootroyd`s side was Cardiff`s first success in four attempts and moved them back into the automatic promotion places.
