Bluebirds shorn of Niasse for Toffees clash
Cardiff boss Neil Warnock is without Oumar Niasse for Tuesday's clash against Everton as he cannot play against his parent club.
Niasse penned a six-month loan deal at the Cardiff City Stadium in January and has started five games for the Bluebirds since arriving in South Wales.
The Senegal striker has yet to find the back of the net in 374 minutes of top-flight football but Warnock continues to select the 28-year-old in the hope that he will eventually find his scoring touch.
It remains to be seen who the veteran tactician chooses in his absence but Kenneth Zohore is an option along with Callum Paterson, who could move inside from his traditional wide role.
Midfielder Aron Gunnarsson looks set to return after sitting out the 5-1 drubbing by Watford last time out while Lee Peltier and Bobby Reid will face late fitness checks after recovering from illness.
Victor Camarasa's calf injury appears set to keep the Spaniard out yet again and it seems as though Warnock is becoming frustrated by his absence after taking a thinly-veiled swipe at the Real Betis loan man's commitment on Monday.
