    With McCormack and Bothroyd out, it looks like EJ could be starting. Cardiff have brought Michael Chopra in on a 2 month loan but I've read it could become a permanent deal. This leaves Cardiff with 3 strikers, EJ,Chopra,and Parry.

    I have a feeling Chopra will start, so that lives either Parry or EJ along side him with the other on the bench.

    It keeps getting worse for Cardiff, from BBC

    Three unnamed Cardiff City players may miss the clash at QPR at which on-loan Michael Chopra is expected to return.

    The trio reported sick on Friday morning, complaining of sickness and diarrhea and even if passed fit will travel to London by car.

    Hopefully it's not EJ with the 'mystery sickness.'

    I believe he started in the carling cup game against Swansea. No streams

    It's not his first start but maybe in the championship. He started the carling cup game vs Swansea.. he was there physically but not so much mentally... something Cardiff fans have not forgiven him for. Anyhoo.. this is a tough game against a fellow promotion/playoff chasing side. Hopefully he can get his first goal sometime soon.

    EJ yet to make an apperance in the match tracker. Cardiff seems to be controlling the game, but one of their players just got a red card, so they're down to 10 men.

    Cardiff's Ledley had to leave the game, I hope they don't have another injury worry

    Eddie Johnson challenges Damion Stewart unfairly and gives away a free kick. Free kick taken by Radek Cerny.

    Soccernet says Darren Purse has a red card for Cardiff in the 28th minute.

    Eddie Johnson has an effort at goal from outside the penalty box which goes wide left of the goal.

    Outside the box?

    Eddie just got mentioned on Final Score on BBC. Apparently it was on target, because they said it was saved.

    Sounds like he is doing well but its hard to really say without seeing the game. He did great last week, so hopefully his confidence is high.

    Effort from the edge of the area by Eddie Johnson goes wide of the right-hand post.

    Another effort by EJ. At least he's active.

    Wow with the injuries and now 2 suspensions (purse was sent off earlier) Cardiff are going to be hurting.
