Ledley not quite ready. Watford preview

It's still doubtful he'll be totally ready to play but he's ahead of both Riccy Scimeca and Tony Capaldi who have both been written off for a while longer.

Those three aside City shoud have no further worries. A couple of minor knocks after the weekend's win over Charlton are expected to be cleared up.

"Joe has trained hard all week." said Dave Jones. "It was too soon for him last Saturday.

"In all honesty, I think we will be looking at Saturday rather than tomorrow night."

Jones admits his side are not firing on all cylinders yet despite being 4th in the table.

"A couple of weeks ago, we were getting battered from pillar to post, but we are building and maturing as a team," Jones continued.

"I still don't think we are firing on all cylinders and there is more to come from us."

Cardiff go to Watford looking to break a 38 year hoodoo at Vicarage Rd. You have to go back to October 1970 when Brian Clark's goal won it for the Bluebirds. John Toshack was in the City line up that night as well.

The home side have lost once at Vicarage Rd this season. They have managed to score in every home game this season so City are going to have to perfom well to come home with three points. Dave Jones realises that every match comes with it's own difficulties.

"No matter who we play in this division, they are all tough, strong sides and you've got to be properly prepared," he said.

"Sometimes we need a break and a little bit of luck. We need all of those ingredients to go on and win a football match.

"If we keep believing and working at it and cut out the sloppiness, we will win more than we don't."

Kick off on Tuesday night is at 7:45pm. Hopefully we'll not get stung by a last gasp goal like we did last season.
