Bartley blow for Burnley
Burnley boss Eddie Howe will be without Marvin Bartley for the home clash with promotion rivals Cardiff but new signing Zavon Hines could make his debut.
Midfielder Bartley begins a three-match ban after being sent off during last weekend's 2-0 defeat against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
The Clarets have signed West Ham striker Hines on a two-year deal, with a compensation fee set to be decided by a tribunal.
Martin Paterson remains sidelined with a troublesome thigh injury, but striker Danny Ings, 19, has joined from Bournemouth to become reunited with Howe and will not be rushed into action.
Howe said: "I think there will be a settling in period and we are going to have to be clever with him because I wouldn't say he is ready to play week-in and week-out."
Cardiff manager Malky Mackay may make changes after suffering their first loss of the season at home to Brighton in midweek.
Following that defeat, Mackay spoke of his desire to strengthen his squad but it is unlikely there will be any new arrivals who sign in time for the game.
However, summer signing Aron Gunnarsson may be fit enough to return.
The Iceland international missed the Brighton game with the ankle injury he picked up in last week's win over Bristol City.
Young French striker Rudy Gestede is pushing for a start following his 20-minute cameo in midweek, although Mackay is likely to stick with the experienced duo of Kenny Miller and Robert Earnshaw.
Austin powers on but Clarets are held
Charlie Austin maintained his impressive form but Burnley were left searching for their first npower Championship win of the season after being held 1-1 at home by Cardiff.
Clarets striker Austin opened the scoring in the second minute with his third goal in four appearances so far this term.
But Cardiff hit back five minutes before the break when Robert Earnshaw fired home an equaliser and neither side could find a winner thereafter.
Burnley boss Eddie Howe made three changes to his side following the Clarets' 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace last weekend.
Michael Duff started his first game of the season, replacing Andre Amougou, Dean Marney was restored to midfield and Austin was handed a starting role up front.
Striker Zavon Hines was named among the substitutes following his move from West Ham on Friday.
Cardiff boss Malky Mackay kept faith with the same side that lost 3-1 at home to Brighton in midweek.
And it was Burnley who began the brighter, tearing out of the blocks to open the scoring inside the second minute.
Defender Kieran Trippier engineered the space to flight a teasing cross into the heart of the Bluebirds' penalty box and Austin arrived to head home from six yards out.
The visitors gradually steadied themselves and almost drew an immediate response when Mark Hudson arrived to meet a cross, only to see his close-range header flash narrowly wide.
Yet Burnley almost doubled their advantage in the 11th minute when Trippier again found space down the flank and delivered another fine cross.
Austin was again there to meet his delivery but this time could only steer his header wide.
Clarets winger Ross Wallace then warmed Cardiff goalkeeper David Marshall's hands with a 20-yard strike before Jay Rodriguez headed wide midway through the first half.
Winger Keith Treacy flashed a 12-yard shot just wide in the 31st minute but the Bluebirds survived and drew level in the 40th minute.
Defender Andrew Taylor found Earnshaw with a neat pass and the former Nottingham Forest forward fired home a low left-foot shot from six yards.
Kenny Miller then saw a 20-yard shot blocked as the sides went in level at the break.
Chances came and went after the restart as Earnshaw headed goalwards from six yards in the 55th minute but Lee Grant made a comfortable save.
Four minutes later, Wallace spurned a decent opportunity when he hit a weak shot when well placed on the edge of the six-yard box.
In the 64th minute, Hines came on for Austin as Howe sought to breath new life into his attack.
Treacy went close for Burnley with a 12-yard strike that Hudson blocked and Hines went close twice in quick succession, first seeing a shot blocked by Hudson and then Kevin McNaughton as the sides remained on level terms at the final whistle.
