Claus Jorgensen will be absent from the Coventry City team that faces Ipswich Town at Portman Road tonight.
The 29-year-old Faroe Islands international was sent off late in the 4-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday and has been handed a twomatch ban.
Robert Page, the central defender, serves the second of a three-match ban, while Stuart Giddings has yet to recover from knee problems. Neil Wood is back from an ankle knock.
Midfielder Lilian Nalis, who is on loan from Sheffield United, made his debut in Saturday's 4-1 defeat to Crystal Palace, and is grateful for the chance to be re-united with Micky Adams and kick-start his career at Ricoh Arena.
Nalis, who has arrived at Coventry for a month, previously played under Adams with Leicester City as well as alongside James Scowcroft, Andy Impey and Matt Heath.
"I went from Leicester to Sheffield United but then I got tonsilitis and after that the team were playing really well so it was difficult to get back into the side," Nalis, a 34-year-old Frenchman, said.
"So I've come hear to play games and when you haven't played for a while it makes you very eager to get out there again.
"Also, there are plenty of familiar faces here. Knowing how the manager wants his football to be played has made it easier for me to adapt." n Teenager Cameron Jerome believes Cardiff teammate Michael Ricketts can help him gain senior England recognition.
The 19-year-old made his England Under-21 debut in the European Championship clash with Austria and has now targeted a full cap.
"Michael Ricketts has played for England, he's achieved so much and I look on him as a role model," said Jerome. "Playing alongside Michael for Cardiff will certainly help."
