Cardiff are likely to again be without captain Sean Morrison for the Sky Bet Championship match against Blackburn.
Defender Morrison has not played since the win at Swansea because of a calf problem, missing the defeats by Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday.
Midfielder Josh Murphy will come back into contention following illness, while defender Jordi Osei-Tutu (hamstring) stepped up his recovery in an under-23s match, but is still short of full fitness.
Forward Lee Tomlin (groin) is another closing in on a return, but defenders Joel Bagan (shoulder) and Joe Bennett (ACL) are long-term absentees.
Blackburn defender Joe Rankin-Costello will not feature again this season because of a foot injury.
The right-back came off against Wycombe on Good Friday, with scans having now confirmed a fractured metatarsal.
Spanish defender Daniel Ayala is unlikely to play again this term as he struggled with a groin problem which has sidelined him since late December.
Midfielder Bradley Dack (knee) and defender Scott Wharton (Achilles) are Rovers’ other long-term absentees.
