    Will EJ receive more playing time after his surprisingly positive performance on Tuesday? Chopra is expected to be fit, but Bothroyd is still not certain for Saturday.

    If Bothroyd isn't 100%, then I would expect once again for Chopra and EJ to start alongside each other as strikers.

    There are probably no viewing options, but the game is at 10:00 EST.

    I don't think he will start but could get some time...it would be nice if he started since he did get man of the match in the last game

    If Bothroyd isn't back, Eddie will likely start. But if their man Jay is back, then who knows?

    I've read that if EJ keeps playing like he did last week then Bothroyd knows he isn't an automatic return. I'm paraphrasing a quote from Jones.

    Chopra and Bothroyd were given late fitness tests on Friday. I know Chopra had a heel problem that Jones said was getting better in an interview after last weeks game.

    I'd hope EJ would get some minutes, maybe a half or so, and have Bothroyd on the bench. If he EJ plays well he'd stay in, if not then Bothroyd will come in. Either way I could see Bothroyd getting some minutes to get back to fitness, how long though is the question.

    There are no streams because the game isn't being shown in the UK.

    DJ gives Eddie what he promises today for his good work on Tuesday, oh nevermind Eddie's actually back on the bench and Bothroyd and Chopra are starting. :(

    McCormack is also on the bench so who knows if EJ will even get into the game. I can't see Jones replacing both Chopra and Bothroyd.

    No. It isn't being shown in the UK so no stream. Plus anything below the EPL rarely is shown on tv. Maybe 1 game a week if that.

    Goal!! Eddie Johnson hits a very good left footed shot to the lower right corner from the right penalty area (aprox. 18 yards) and scores!! Cardiff City now leads 3 - 0
