Match Preview

Bellamy on bench Craig Bellamy is likely to be among the Cardiff substitutes against Middlesbrough this weekend having missed the last four games while defender Matt Connolly is expected to be available again. Bellamy flew to the USA to work with specialists on the ankle injury sustained during Cardiff's 2-1 win against Watford and was given the go-ahead to resume full training with the Bluebirds ahead of the clash with in-form Boro. Kevin McNaughton was substituted in the victory over Hull with a thigh strain and is unlikely to feature. If that proves to be the case he will be replaced by Connolly in what could be the only change to the XI that beat Steve Bruce's men. Jordon Mutch has resumed full training after two months on the sidelines with a foot injury while Don Cowie (knee) is making good progress. Tommy Smith (hamstring) is still a couple of weeks away from a return to action. Stephen McPhail played 90 minutes for the development side on Tuesday night and could come into the reckoning. Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray faces an anxious wait over midfielder Josh McEachran. The 19-year-old, on loan for the season from Chelsea, limped out of England Under-21s' 2-0 win over Northern Ireland at Bloomfield Road on Tuesday night with an ankle problem and will be assessed over the next 48 hours. Mowbray will also await news over defender Jonathan Woodgate and midfielder Kevin Thomson. Woodgate failed to return after half-time in Friday night's 3-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday after suffering a calf injury, while Thomson has been missing for some time with a similar problem. Long-term absentees Rhys Williams (ankle ligaments), Muzzy Carayol and Curtis Main (both knee) and Julio Arca (toe), are making progress, but are likely to be sidelined until the New Year.
