Cardiff maestro Peter Whittingham is confident he will be fit for the play-off final against Blackpool next Saturday.

The midfielder was forced off due to a groin injury at the end of the regular 90 minutes at the Cardiff City Stadium, but he insists he will be walking out at Wembley looking to send the Bluebirds into the Premier League.

"I'm confident I'll be fit for the final," he told the club's official website. "I`ll be with the physios for a few days and hopefully all will be fine. The physios are always brilliant and I`m sure it will be fine."

Whittingham has been instrumental to City's success this season and grabbed his 25th goal of the campaign on Wednesday night to send the semi-final second leg into penalties, coming after Leicester had fought back to cancel out his opener in the first leg.

Looking ahead to the final, he added: "You are always going to get hard games now and obviously Blackpool have proved they can beat Forest. It is going to be a hard game for us, but it is one that we are all really looking forward to.

"Quite a few of the lads watched it (their semi-final) and Blackpool are a good team, you don't get to where they are without being a good team so fair play to them. But we`re looking to go to Wembley and win of course."
