Match Preview

Boss Aidy waits on King Coventry boss Aidy Boothroyd will hope to have Marlon King back in his ranks for the visit of Cardiff. The striker failed to recover from his thigh injury in time for Saturday`s 2-1 victory at Ipswich but is expected to return to contention against Dave Jones` second-placed Bluebirds. King`s comeback presents Boothroyd with a welcome dilemma having watched Clive Platt and Lukas Jutkiewicz combine to bag the goals which secured the club`s first victory at Portman Road since 1994, with the Sky Blues boss admitting "it's a nice problem to have". Boothroyd was thrilled with the manner of Coventry`s victory at the weekend and could well be tempted to name an unchanged line-up with no new injury or suspension problems to contend with. However, his remaining list of absentees all continue to miss out including Danny Ward, Freddy Eastwood, David Bell, Chris Hussey, Gary Deegan and Stephen O`Halloran. Craig Bellamy comes into the fold to face former club Coventry having been rested for Cardiff`s 3-2 win over Bristol City on Saturday. The on-loan striker has only recently returned from his latest spell on the sidelines nursing his long-standing knee problem and manager Jones knows he must used his prized asset sparingly, making three games in the space of 10 days a tall order. Jones` decision to leave Bellamy out of his matchday 18 at the weekend means he is expected to feature at the Ricoh Arena against the club he spent one season with a decade ago. Michael Chopra returned to face Bristol City after his lengthy lay-off recovering from ankle ligament damage, partnering another ex-Sky Blues striker in Jay Bothroyd, and it will be up to Jones to decide who gets the nod on Tuesday night. Stephen McPhail was forced off with a knee injury midway through the second half of the Severnside derby and will have to be assessed, with fellow midfielder Danny Drinkwater (thigh) and defenders Paul Quinn (knee) and Chris Riggott already on the sidelines. Darcy Blake does however return to the fold having served his one-match ban.

Match Report

Bothroyd bags winner for Bluebirds Jay Bothroyd followed up Cardiff manager Dave Jones' claim that he could be worth an England call-up by grabbing a late winner in a 2-1 victory against his former club Coventry in a keenly-contested npower Championship encounter. All of the pre-match talk centred around Craig Bellamy's return to Coventry, nine years after the striker - who remains the club's record signing - capped a disappointing sole season when he criticised the club upon his departure for Newcastle. But it was another former Sky Blue frontman in Bothroyd who stole the points for second-placed Cardiff with a deft finish to convert Chris Burke's 86th-minute low cross, just three days after Jones urged Fabio Capello to take a look at him. The result was harsh on a Coventry side who had given the high-flying Bluebirds a real run for their money. It was from Bellamy's cross that Ben Turner tugged back Michael Chopra to leave Nuneaton-born Peter Whittingham with the chance to open the scoring from the spot after just five minutes. But Gary McSheffrey levelled on the stroke of half-time after Mark Hudson had inexplicably given the ball away in midfield. Cardiff's devastating wealth of attacking firepower is certain to cause many teams problems this season. Bothroyd - who spent three largely underachieving years at Coventry from 2000 to 2003 - partnered Chopra in attack, with Bellamy, Whittingham and Chris Burke all in midfield. Coventry were unchanged from the side who on Saturday recorded the club's first win at Ipswich for 16 years. Bellamy, predictably, received a chorus of boos from the Ricoh Arena faithful from his first touch until his last. But he and the visitors were celebrating early on when Whittingham slotted home a penalty - his third in the last three meetings between these two sides - after Turner hauled down Chopra. The game was 18 minutes old when Coventry full-back Martin Cranie tested Bluebirds goalkeeper Tom Heaton with a low drive, while Keiren Westwood had to be at his best to turn away Gabor Gyepes' snap-shot at the other end. Hudson, partnering Gyepes in central defence, headed narrowly wide from a Bellamy corner for the visitors just after the half-hour mark. That looked set to be the last chance of the first half until Hudson played a suicidal pass straight to Aron Gunnarsson who surged forward and fed McSheffrey on the left, and he duly cut inside Kevin McNaughton before beating Heaton. Cardiff fell off the pace as the first half closed out and that continued at the start of the second half against a Coventry side who grew in confidence. Yet neither goalkeeper had been forced to make a real save in the second half as the clash reached the 70-minute mark. That led to Marlon King and Jason Koumas being introduced by Aidy Boothroyd and Jones respectively. But with the game seemingly heading for a draw, it was left for Bothroyd to steal the glory, providing the clinical finish to Burke's centre.
