Mendez-Laing in contention for Hammers clash

4th December 2018, 09:06 by James Mason

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing is available for Cardiff City's Premier League clash at West Ham United on Tuesday night.

The former England Under-17 international last appeared in the 0-0 draw against Huddersfield Town in August but he was back on the bench for the 2-1 win against Wolves last time out after recovering from a knee injury.

Mendez-Laing is available for the trip to the London Stadium and manager Neil Warnock could decide to give the 26-year-old a start with the games coming thick and fast over the festive period.

The Bluebirds will definitely be without Jazz Richards, while while Greg Cunningham, Joe Bennett and Kenneth Zohore are not expected to be rushed into action after just returning from injury.

Warnock has revealed his side are walking wounded at the moment and he will need to ask a lot of his players.

He said at a press conference: "We're struggling a bit injury-wise. Another couple of lads had knocks. I was going to change it and rest players but I don't think I can now. I'll have to ask the lads to perform three times in a week."
