Zohore missing for Bluebirds

11th January 2019, 16:17 by James Mason

Neil Warnock has revealed Kenneth Zohore is unavailable for Cardiff's relegation battle at home to Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Former Denmark Under-21 international Zohore has been sidelined since the 5-1 defeat to Manchester United last month due to a thigh strain and Warnock has confirmed he remains out for the Terriers' visit.

"Kenneth [Zohore] is looking sharp. He starts full-time training next week," he said at a press conference. "His eyes are bright and it's nice to see. He's worked really hard to get back.

"It was disappointing to lose him on the Man United. He'll be struggling to get back for next weekend but he might get on the bench."

Warnock also revealed a number of his players are doubtful with knocks although he refused to reveal which specific individuals these are.

He added: "Most of them trained yesterday, so we'll have to wait and see. Nothing concrete on that."

A win for Cardiff would give them an 11-point advantage over rock-bottom Huddersfield, who are on a nine-game losing run.
