Notts trio unlikely to be risked

Mark Stallard, Ian Richardson and Paul Riley are all fit to return after long-term injury.

"I don't think I will risk any of them in the squad on Saturday," Dearden told the Nottingham News.

"I was talking about putting Stallard on the bench last weekend, if he had been fit, but that was only because it was a home match.

"I felt that it would have given us a lift at Meadow Lane, had he been able to play a part. But I am not sure it would have the same effect at Cardiff.

"They could all play a part on the final day of the season though. They should all be fit enough to return by that point, which should be a welcome boost."
