The 32-year-old requires ankle surgery having ruptured tendons and is likely to be sidelined for around 12 weeks.

The news comes following the timely return of Joe Ledley after a double hip operation, with the Wales international playing his first full match in just over two months as the Bluebirds held Nottingham Forest to a goalless draw on Monday.

However, fellow midfielders Peter Whittingham and Chris Burke remain doubts to face the Royals due to muscle injuries and will both undergo late fitness tests, along with defender Kevin McNaughton.

Captain Mark Hudson is back in full training after a lengthy absence following ankle surgery of his own and may play a part, although manager Dave Jones could opt to give him another week of training before throwing him back in at QPR next Saturday.
