Cardiff boss Dave Jones expects Robbie Fowler to be "honest and truthful" in assessing his fitness ahead of Saturday´s FA Cup final.

The former Liverpool striker´s last outing came back in December but Jones revealed he could still make the bench for what will be City´s first FA Cup final since 1927 against Portsmouth at Wembley after recovering from a hip problem.

"We have to make sure that everything about him is right. The only person that will give me that knowledge is Robbie himself," he said. "Robbie has been around football long enough to be honest and truthful and say, ´look, yes I am fine´ and at the moment that´s what he´s saying and in training he looks fine."
