Rudy Gestede fitness boost for Cardiff City promotion bid

Rudy Gestede
Rudy Gestede has made 25 appearance for the Bluebirds this season

Rudy Gestede is set to give Cardiff City a timely fitness boost ahead of the club's Championship clash at home to Coventry City on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old French striker suffered a hamstring injury in the 2-0 defeat to West Ham United on 4 March.

And since then he has missed four matches of which Cardiff have only taken five points out of a possible 12.

Gestede's fitness is a boost as on-loan midfielder Haris Vuckic has gone back to Newcastle United.

And with a home defeat to Hull and a draw to Burnley the Bluebirds need to start turning round their results if they want to end up in the play-off zone at the end of the season.

Gestede has scored three goals in 25 games in his first season in the English league.
