Cardiff City

No fresh concerns for Bluebirds

31st December 2018, 15:17 by Gareth Freeman

Cardiff City have no fresh injury concerns for the visit of Tottenham but striker Kenneth Zohore remains sidelined.

Forward Zohore, who has been linked with a January exit, has a thigh injury and the game against Spurs comes too soon.

Manager Neil Warnock could keep faith with the same starting side that claimed a 1-0 win at Leicester City last time out, but Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, Kadeem Harris and Joe Bennett are among those pushing for a recall to the starting line-up.

Warnock expects a stern test against title hopefuls Tottenham and paid tribute to counterpart Mauricio Pochettino.

He told reporters: "It's a massive challenge, they've got so many quality players. One bad result and it's a catastrophe in the press, but it's an exciting club with the prospect of a new stadium and the number of quality English lads is great for us.

"I admire [Mauricio] Pochettino and his staff."
