Olofinjana: Ready to return

Cardiff will be boosted by the return of some of their big names as they look to halt a run of two consecutive defeats against Millwall.

After a promising start to the Championship, the Bluebirds' momentum has been checked by their latest results.

Lions boss Kenny Jackett is also aiming to see his side return to winning ways after a run of three league games without a win.

Defeats

Seyi Olofinjana should return for Cardiff for the lunchtime kick-off after missing their last two defeats to Leicester and Ipswich with a foot injury.

The influential on-loan midfielder last featured with a match-winning display against parent club Hull City two weeks ago.

Jay Bothroyd (calf) started last Saturday's 2-0 loss at Portman Road and should be fit, but star striker Craig Bellamy (knee) is again likely to miss out.

However, on-loan Manchester United midfielder Danny Drinkwater (thigh) and striker Michael Chopra (ankle) are both looking to make their returns after the international break in October.

Trio

Millwall are set to welcome back influential trio Jimmy Abdou, Kevin Lisbie and Theo Robinson for the trip to Wales.

Midfielder Abdou sat out Tuesday night's Carling Cup exit at the hands of Ipswich due to an ankle injury but will be fit to travel.

Lisbie was not eligible to face his parent club and fellow loan striker Robinson was cup-tied.

Boss Jackett has doubts over wingers Danny Schofield and James Henry, who both picked up knocks against the Tractor Boys and will need late checks.

Defender Tony Craig made his first appearance since breaking a metatarsal during last season's play-off final and could keep his place.

Meanwhile, Darren Carter, Andrew Frampton (both ankle), Shaun Batt (knee) and John Marquis (wrist) are still in the treatment room.
