Cardiff City have been boosted by the news that striker Jay Bothroyd is not facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a knee injury.
It was initially feared that the striker was set for a prolonged lay-off after he appeared to suffer a serious knee injury in last weekend's defeat at Doncaster Rovers.
However, manager Dave Jones now expects the striker to be fit for next weekend's visit of Newcastle United.
"It's not too serious and we'll nurse Jay through the next few days and see how he is early next week," he said.
"The signs are that he'll be okay to play against Newcastle. We'll wait and see how he progresses, but we hope he'll be okay."
