Cardiff City utility man Darcy Blake insists he is fit for the club's weekend Championship clash with Ipswich.

The Wales international was withdrawn from their Euro 2012 qualifying win over Bulgaria on Tuesday with a sore calf.

It had been feared the 22-year-old would subsequently sit out the game against Ipswich, but he insists he is raring to go.

Precautionary

"I'm definitely going to be okay for Saturday," commented Blake.

"It was precautionary more than anything because my calf stiffened up and we didn't want to push it.

"The surface wasn't the greatest and it was for the best to make sure we avoided any full injury. There was no point risking it."
