Cardiff boss Neil Warnock is planning to rotate his squad as they return from the international break by hosting Sheffield Wednesday on Friday.
The Bluebirds have a hectic week, with a trip to Millwall in midweek being followed by the derby clash at Swansea next Sunday, and Warnock said he is planning on using his squad to get through the games.
Warnock will have goalkeeper Neil Etheridge and winger Junior Hoilett available, after they came back unscathed from representing the Philippines and Canada respectively.
Joe Ralls is expected to return, having missed two league games due to a groin injury, while Ashley Richards and Isaac Vassell are sidelined until November.
Sheffield Wednesday are boosted by the return of suspended duo Fernando Forestieri and Sam Hutchinson.
Liam Palmer and Atdhe Nuhiu are also available after returning to training at the end of the international break.
Massimo Luongo has resumed full training following a knee issue but is unlikely to be fit enough to play in Cardiff.
Captain Tom Lees continues to regain fitness after a hamstring injury and will not be available.
