Cardiff City vs Burton Albion FC - Aron Gunnarsson set for long-awaited Cardiff return

Aron Gunnarsson returns to the Cardiff squad for the first time since November at home to Burton on Good Friday.

Gunnarsson has been recovering from ankle surgery, but he had a 45-minute run out for Iceland against Mexico in California during the international break.

Joe Ralls (hamstring) remains out and Jazz Richards (ankle) has had a setback in training which will rule him out for another two to three weeks.

Goalkeeper Neil Etheridge is available after making the long trip to Manila and helping the Philippines qualify for the Asian Cup for the first time in their history with a 2-1 win over Tajikstan on Tuesday.

Burton hope to have defensive duo John Brayford and Ben Turner available against their former club.

Brayford and Turner have both been suffering from calf injuries but have returned to training this week.

Martin Samuelsen is also in contention after missing the last two games through illness but Lucas Akin is doubtful and Will Miller remains out.

Liam Boyce is available after featuring as a second-half substitute in Northern Ireland’s win over South Korea last weekend.
