Cardiff boss Dave Jones again has the luxury of a virtually fully-fit squad for the visit of relegation-threatened Sheffield Wednesday.

Solomon Taiwo, who last featured back in February, is expected to miss the rest of the season as he prepares to undergo a hip operation.

The midfielder joins long-term absentees Gavin Rae (ankle and knee) and Miguel Comminges (knee) on the sidelines.

Otherwise, Jones is at full strength and determined to see his side maintain their momentum over the remaining two games of the campaign despite already clinching a play-off place.

The Bluebirds boss has called on his charges to try and snatch third spot away from Nottingham Forest, meaning the Owls can expect no favours as they travel to the Welsh capital looking for all three points to give them a chance of avoiding the drop.

Yet whether Jones opts to make changes and freshen up his XI ahead of next month`s play-offs remains to be seen.

Owls boss Alan Irvine also boasts an almost full squad for the clash.

Sean McAllister (stomach) and Lewis Buxton (hamstring) have both returned to training after recovering from their respective injuries and will be in contention for a place in the squad.

On-loan Preston defender Eddie Nolan twisted his ankle in last Sunday's 1-1 draw against Steel City rivals Sheffield United, but has shown no ill-effects in training and will be available for selection.

Midfielder Tommy Miller (calf) is the only injury absentee for the Owls.

Wednesday are a point behind fourth-bottom Crystal Palace with just two games remaining and could be relegated this weekend if they fail to win and both Watford and Crystal Palace secure three points.
