Zaha has produced some promising displays since joining from Manchester United in January, but was an unused substitute in Sunday's 1-0 defeat at Tottenham.

Cardiff host basement club Fulham on Saturday and Solskjaer has suggested that Zaha will feature for the Welsh side as they attempt to close the gap on their drop rivals in the Premier League.

"Wilf's been very positive since he's come," said Solskjaer.

"He's made a great contribution in some of the games. He's got talent we'll use in the next 10 games definitely."

Cardiff are three points adrift of West Brom in 17th place, who also have a game in hand, and Solskjaer accepts that a draw at the weekend against Fulham will be a missed opportunity for both sides.

"It's a winnable game, against a team in the same situation as us," he said.

"It will be two teams that have to go out there and try to win the game. A draw would be no good for either of us, so I think you will see some positive football from both sides.

"We've got the international break now, but we've got to keep minds on Saturday."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
