Cardiff City could close the gap on the top six to just one point with a victory over Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

They welcome the Latics to the Welsh capital looking to make it three wins in the last seven days.

Victories against Luton Town and Huddersfield Town will likely leave them high on confidence heading into the weekend but Neil Harris’ side will not want to underestimate Wigan, who have claimed some scalps this season.

Recent wins over Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United demonstrate just how dangerous Paul Cook’s men can be and with that in mind, Harris will want to ensure his side is as strong as it can be for their arrival.

Harris told Wales Online earlier today that January loan signings Dion Sanderson and Brad Smith were fit and in contention for Saturday.

One man that will not be available is midfielder Joe Ralls, though there has been a positive update on his recovery.

Ralls has been missing since January due to injury but Harris revealed that he is “doing really well”.

It is understood that tomorrow’s game will be too soon for him but that he is back in training.

There have also been positive updates on the recoveries of Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Isaac Vassell.

Mendez-Laing had surgery on a hamstring issue in January but Harris has indicated that he back in the gym and at least four weeks away from training on grass.

Vassell is thought to be also doing really well in his recovery, though the Bluebirds are determined not to rush him back too quickly.

However, the Bluebirds boss also suggested earlier this week that defender Matthew Connolly was unlikely to feature for the first team again this season due to injury issues.
