City boosted by Bothroyd return

City's top scorer has been out for over a month with a hamstring injury and he returns to the squad along with new signing Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.

Cardiff will also have Craig Bellamy, Michael Chopra, Peter Whittingham, Seyi Olofinjana and Kevin McNaughton all available for selection as Dave Jones looks to put out a much stronger side than the one that faced Stoke in midweek.

Steve McPhail is definately out with a hamstring injury picked up against The Potters while Paul Quinn hopes to be fit.

Dekel Keinan is unlikely to feature unless his work permit is sorted in time but him aside and the injured McPhail Jones has a strong squad to work with.

Jones can choose from a squad containing Heaton, Marshall, Quinn, Matthews, McNaughton, Gyepes, Naylor, Blake, Olofinjana, Drinkwater, Emmanuel-Thomas, Rae, Wildig, Bellamy, Burke, Whittingham, Chopra, Bothroyd, Parkin, Keogh.

Cardiff v Watford.
Saturday. 3:00pm.
