Match Preview

Rudy set to return for Bluebirds Cardiff manager Malky Mackay has hinted Rudy Gestede could return when Coventry make the trip to Wales. After drawing 0-0 with Burnley at the weekend, Mackay will be desperate for his squad to show they are not suffering a Carling Cup hangover following the defeat on penalties to Liverpool. Since that game the Bluebirds have only won only one of their five games, scoring just four goals in the process. Gestede's return could help with the lack of goals, but Mackay has also publicly backed the misfiring Kenny Miller. Robert Earnshaw replaced Miller on Sunday and will be hoping to get the nod if Mackay opts to change his strikeforce. Slovakian midfielder Filip Kiss missed the Burnley clash with illness but should be back in the squad alongside Darcy Blake. Stephen McPhail made a five-minute substitute appearance in the weekend stalemate after returning from Sjogren's Syndrome and he will be hoping for a place in the squad once again. Craig Conway will hope to challenge loanee Liam Lawrence for a starting berth after impressing during his 27-minute spell against the Clarets. Coventry are sweating on the fitness of striker Cody McDonald. McDonald was only fit enough for a place amongst the substitutes in the 1-1 draw with Watford at the weekend and may have to settle for a similar role again as he struggles to fully overcome a groin problem. Andy Thorn also has concerns over winger David Bell who has missed the Sky Blues' last three games with a groin problem. His loss is felt harder for Thorn due to the fact that fellow wideman Carl Baker is out for the foreseeable future with a hamstring injury. Hermann Hreidarsson is out for the rest of the season having dislocated his shoulder, while Richard Wood's knee injury is set to keep him out for a while longer yet. Jordan Clarke was substituted with cramp towards the end of the weekend draw but will not miss the trip to Wales.
