Cardiff City boss Paul Trollope admits he has injuries mounting at right wing-back.

The Bluebirds, who have switched to a 3-5-2 system under the former Wales coach, now have two fitness doubts in the same position ahead of Saturday's trip to Fulham.

Jazz Richards missed the 2-1 win over Blackburn with a calf issue and Lee Peltier went off with an ankle injury.

"We will assess it in the next 24 hours," Trollope said.

"We were missing Jazz Richards, but thought Lee Peltier had a really good 60 minutes at right wing-back.

"Jazz has a calf problem, and he's taken a whack on his shin. We didn't want to take a risk on him.

"I decided to keep the shape with the wingbacks and Lee Peltier will be assessed in the next 24 hours.

"Has shown capabilities in two games now, he was doing well."

Youngster Kadeem Harris came off the bench to replace Peltier in the second half as Cardiff secured their first win of the season against the Championship's bottom side.
