Team News: Jordan Rhodes misses Cardiff City visit

Jordan Rhodes sits out Blackburn Rovers' visit of Cardiff City at Ewood Park.

Blackburn Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes has not been named in tonight's first XI for the visit of Cardiff City.

The 25-year-old limped out of Saturday's 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town with an ankle injury, and has failed to shake off the knock in time for the Bluebirds.

Gary Bowyer makes four changes in total from that stalemate, with striker Nathan Delfouneso, Bengali-Fode Koita, Tommy Spurr and Hope Akpan - earning his first start - coming in.

Meanwhile, City boss Russell Slade has the luxury of giving David Marshall a first game of the season after the goalkeeper served his three-match ban.

Marshall's return in place of Simon Moore represents Cardiff's only change from the 2-2 draw at Queens Park Rangers at the weekend.

The Welsh side sit 14th in the Championship ahead of kickoff, with two points from as many games, while 17th-placed Rovers have won just one point since the season started.

Blackburn Rovers: Raya; Henley, Duffy, Hanley, Spurr; Marshall, Lowe, Akpan, Conway; Delfouneso, Koita

Cardiff City: Marshall; Peltier, Malone, Morrison, Connolly; Dikgacoi, Whittingham, Ralls, Pilkington; Mason, Revell
