Cardiff City injury latest ahead of Brighton clash in the Premier League

Kenneth Zohore missed Cardiff City's 1-0 defeat to Leicester with a calf injury that will keep him sidelined for this weekend's clash with Brighton.

But the Bluebirds are set to be boosted by the return of Joe Ralls, who has been out with both injury and suspension for the past three matches.

Jazz Richards (hamstring), Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (knee) and Lee Peltier (shoulder) are the others ruled out with injury, although Neil Warnock revealed Ralls and Danny Ward could return.

Ralls was sent off against Tottenham Hotspur and incurred a three-match ban but he's also been struggling with a chipped bone in his knee.

"He’s training, he’s been out with this knee problem and he's eligible to come in on Saturday," said Warnock on the midfielder.

"He's not been able to do any training until this week. He's a fit lad and he had a tough day yesterday and we’ll see how he is. He’ll definitely be in the squad on Saturday."

Ralls return to the starting XI would be a welcome one with Harry Arter missing after picking up five yellow cards and a one-match suspension.

"I’m really disappointed all over on that, that he couldn’t curb himself but I've got to live with that. I suppose that’s why I got him on loan," said Warnock on the combative on-loan Bournemouth star.

Warnock then revealed the reason behind Zohore's previously unexplained absence from the matchday squad against Leicester.

"Zohore’s had a calf injury which hasn't helped us," he said.

"That’s the difference with the top teams, they’ve got Under-23 internationals to come into the squad, whereas we’ve only got 17 or 18 with the injuries we've got. That shows the massive divide really."
