Injured Rickie Lambert to sit out Cardiff's clash with Rotherham

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock is set to be without striker Rickie Lambert against his former club Rotherham as the Bluebirds seek a third straight win after away victories over Leeds and Derby.

Lambert is struggling with a back injury and Warnock revealed the former Liverpool and West Brom player will see a specialist next week.

Warnock is hoping for better news from Greg Halford and Sean Morrison, who picked up knocks in the thrilling 4-3 win at Derby.

Cardiff duo Tom Adeyemi and Semi Ajayi are currently on loan at Rotherham but will not be eligible to face their parent club.

Joel Ekstrand is still awaiting his debut for bottom-of-the-table Rotherham and may come into contention after spending the Millers' last two matches on the bench.

The Swedish defender was not used again on Tuesday when Paul Warne's men - cast adrift by 12 points and facing near certain relegation already - led twice before suffering a hammer blow as in-form Huddersfield grabbed the winning goal deep into injury-time.

A raft of hamstring injuries is not helping Rotherham.

Aymen Belaid, Darnell Fisher and deadline-day signing Carlton Morris are the men afflicted.
