Cardiff will hope to have Seyi Olofinjana back in the fold for their lunchtime kick-off at home to Millwall.

The influential on-loan midfielder, who last featured with a match-winning display against parent club Hull two weeks ago, has missed the defeats to Leicester and Ipswich.

However, Olofinjana could well have recovered from a foot injury in time to take his place against the Lions.

Jay Bothroyd (calf) started last Saturday's 2-0 loss at Portman Road and should be fit, but fellow striker Craig Bellamy (knee) is again likely to miss out.

On-loan Manchester United midfielder Danny Drinkwater (thigh) and striker Michael Chopra (ankle) are both looking to make their returns after the international break in October.

Millwall welcome back Jimmy Abdou, Kevin Lisbie and Theo Robinson for the trip to Wales.

Midfielder Abdou sat out Tuesday night's Carling Cup exit at the hands of Ipswich due to an ankle injury but will be fit to travel.

Lisbie was not eligible to face his parent club and fellow loan striker Robinson was cup-tied.

Boss Kenny Jackett has doubts over wingers Danny Schofield and James Henry, who both picked up knocks against the Tractor Boys and will need late checks.

Defender Tony Craig made his first appearance since breaking a metatarsal during last season's play-off final and could keep his place.

Darren Carter, Andrew Frampton (both ankle), Shaun Batt (knee) and John Marquis (wrist) are still in the treatment room.
