Junior Hoilett set to feature for Cardiff after missing Canada friendly

Cardiff forward Junior Hoilett is expected to be fit for Saturday's Sky Bet Championship game at home to Huddersfield.

Bluebirds manager Neil Warnock is confident Hoilett will overcome a minor strain that ruled him out of Canada's friendly against South Korea last weekend.

Anthony Pilkington is likely to return after missing the defeat to Newcastle two weeks ago with a knock while Jazz Richards and Matt Connolly are both close to regaining fitness.

Frederic Gounongbe has impressed in training this week and could be in line for a surprise starting spot up front.

Huddersfield midfielder Aaron Mooy has no fitness issues but will be assessed by head coach David Wagner after returning from international duty with Australia.

Mooy played the full 90 minutes in Australia's 2-2 draw in Thailand on Tuesday, but is expected to be available.

Fellow midfielder Kasey Palmer will also be monitored after he was forced out of the recent home draw against Birmingham due to a hip injury, while striker Nahki Wells is expected to recover from illness.

Forward Harry Bunn is hoping to return to contention after missing out against Birmingham due to a hamstring strain.
