Cardiff v Huddersfield preview

Cardiff could make 11 changes to their starting line-up when they host Huddersfield.

The Bluebirds rang the changes for their midweek Capital One Cup win over Coventry and could replace the entire starting line-up as defender Juan Cala is available again after suspension and could replace Matt Connolly.

The Spaniard has been missing since his red card in the Premier League defeat at Sunderland at the end of last season, and with Ben Turner still sidelined he will hope to find his way back into the line-up.

Craig Noone remains sidelined as does striker Javi Guerra who has a hip injury and is yet to make his Bluebirds bow.

Huddersfield's new signing Jacob Butterfield hopes to make his debut following his arrival in a deal that saw Adam Clayton move to Middlesbrough.

Caretaker boss Mark Lillis could include Butterfield in his starting line-up in his second game in charge, hand fellow midfielder Conor Coady his first league start and recall season-long loan signing Radi Majewski.

Winger Adam Hammill and midfielder Jonathan Hogg, among the substitutes for the midweek Capital One Cup win at Chesterfield, are in contention to start.

But striker James Vaughan (calf), midfielder Oscar Gobern (toe) and defender Anthony Gerrard (calf) all remain doubtful.
