Burnley boss Eddie Howe will be without Marvin Bartley but new signing Zavon Hines could make his debut.

Midfielder Bartley begins a three-match ban after being sent off during last weekend's 2-0 defeat against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The Clarets have signed West Ham striker Hines on a two-year deal, with a compensation fee set to be decided by a tribunal.

Martin Paterson remains sidelined with a troublesome thigh injury, but striker Danny Ings, 19, has joined from Bournemouth to become reunited with Howe and will not be rushed into action.

Howe said: "I think there will be a settling in period and we are going to have to be clever with him because I wouldn't say he is ready to play week-in and week-out."

Cardiff manager Malky Mackay may make changes after suffering their first loss of the season at home to Brighton in midweek.

Following that defeat Mackay spoke of his desire to strengthen his squad but it is unlikely there will be any new arrivals who sign in time for the game.

However, summer signing Aron Gunnarsson may be fit enough to return.

The Icelandic international missed the Brighton game with the ankle injury he picked up in last week's win over Bristol City.

Young French striker Rudy Gestede is pushing for a start following his 20-minute cameo in midweek, although Mackay is likely to stick with the experienced duo of Kenny Miller and Robert Earnshaw.
