Lee Tomlin sidelined for Cardiff’s clash with Nottingham Forest

Cardiff will be without Lee Tomlin when they host fifth-placed Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night.

The midfielder missed the Bluebirds’ loss to Stoke at the weekend due to a knee injury sustained in training and is now set to spend six to eight weeks on the sidelines.

Joe Ralls could regain his place having watched the Stoke fixture from the bench after missing four games with a glute issue.

Defender Matthew Connolly (ankle), winger Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (hamstring) and forward Isaac Vassell (thigh) are all long-term absentees and will play no part.

Nottingham Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi will pick from an almost full-strength squad ahead of the visit to Wales.

Samba Sow (knee) has returned to the injury list after recovering from a previous issue to partake in his club’s 2-2 draw with West Brom on Saturday and is unlikely to feature.

Nuno da Costa is doubtful after leaving the pitch injured during an under-23s fixture.

Tendayi Darikwa has missed the majority of the season with an ACL rupture and is not expected to return during this campaign.
