The Wales international on Friday underwent the first of a double hip operation that is likely to keep him out for most of the season, if not all of it.

Fellow midfielder Gavin Rae shrugged off a hamstring injury to start Tuesday's ruthless demolition of Bristol City, although he was substituted just after the hour mark. A late check will be made on his availability.

Cardiff's back five will remain the same after the midweek clean sheet, meaning centre-back Gabor Gyepes will start at the heart of defence with captain Mark Hudson out of the picture.

The South Wales club seem to have fully recovered from the illness that swept through the camp recently. However, Jones is likely to still be without Stephen McPhail as he regains his match fitness while Josh Magennis continues his recovery from a broken fibula.

Jones has called for solidarity at the Cardiff City Stadium this weekend after a mixed week that started with the 6-0 romp over their Severnside derby rivals but has soon turned sour as the club's off-field struggles continue to dominate the headlines.
