Derby goalkeeper David Marshall is a doubt for the game after being forced off in last Friday’s 1-1 draw at home to Nottingham Forest with a back injury.
Marshall picked up the problem in the first half of the match and will have his fitness closely assessed.
If Marshall is not available, Dutchman Kelle Roos will deputise between the posts.
Otherwise, manager Wayne Rooney has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the clash with the Bluebirds.
Tom Lawrence is still not available after over two months on the sidelines
an ankle injury. He suffered a minor setback in his rehabilitation work
last month but is working with Derby's medical staff to move in the
Krystian Bielik is to miss the rest of the season after sustaining
anterior cruciate ligament damage to his right knee in the recent 1-0
home win over Bristol City at the end of January.
Centre-back Curtis Davies remains out of action for a long-term achilles injury and is set to miss the rest of the season.
Jordon Ibe is building up his sharpness with Derby's fitness coaches to
the point where he can join in with first-team training.
Young striker Jack Stretton continued his work on the way back to full fitness after undergoing minor surgery on a groin problem by playing 45 minutes for Derby's Under-23s on Friday night as they drew 0-0 at West Ham United in Premier League 2 - Division 1.
Speaking to RamsTV ahead of the game, Assistant Manager Liam Rosenior said: “We need to keep doing what we are doing and keep the spirit and determination, as well as working on our quality with the ball and creating goalscoring chances.
“The players know now what is expected of them and the demands that we place on them. We will never demand anything from the players that we know they cannot do.
“That is the worst thing you can do in coaching or teaching; you wouldn’t teach a five-year-old child algebra. You will kill their confidence by doing that!
“You have to show your belief in players. Sometimes you praise the players and show your belief in that way and sometimes you must set the standard and say: ‘you are good enough to achieve these standards’.
“Every time you speak to a player it is an opportunity to get a message across to them. We want to give players the best chance to win every game. That will continue into the game against Cardiff on Tuesday and going into a huge game against Coventry on Saturday as well.
“I think from the time we have taken over the team our form has been in and around the top-six and we want to maintain that for the rest of the season and make sure we are in this league and ready to consolidate and go again next season.”
More pre-match comments from Rosenior and midfielder Jason Knight can be found across dcfc.co.uk and also on RamsTV.
WHO IS THE MAN IN THE MIDDLE…
Dean Whitestone will be in charge of Tuesday night's match.
The official has overseen 24 games so far this season and produced a total of 47 yellow cards and three red cards.
His last game featuring Derby was the 1-1 draw at home to Coventry City in December, while he also took charge of the Rams' 2-1 loss at Luton Town back in September.
Whitestone will be assisted by Matthew McGrath and Mark Pottage on the lines, whilst Daniel Lamport has been appointed as the fourth official.
EFL SUBSTITUTES RULE…
Following consultation with clubs, the EFL Board has agreed to increase the permitted number of substitutes to five in all Sky Bet EFL fixtures for the remainder of the 2020/21 season.
Regulation 33.4 has been amended to permit:
* Championship Clubs to name up to nine substitutes in their matchday squad, with five permitted to take to the pitch in any fixture.
* League One and League Two Clubs can name up to seven substitutes in their match day squad, again with five permitted to take to the pitch.
GOAL LINE TECHNOLOGY…
Goal line technology is, once again, being used at all Sky Bet Championship matches during the 2020/21 season.
The system was introduced for the start of the 2017/18 campaign and is now entering its fourth full season in the division.
The EFL, alongside all 72 of its member clubs, has launched a campaign aimed at discouraging the illegal streaming of fixtures, warning that doing so will take vital revenue away from clubs
The outbreak of COVID-19 and subsequent behind-closed-doors matches mean that income generated by streaming matches is more important than ever and remains one of the only income streams available at this challenging time.
Illegal streaming, therefore, is having a greater impact on clubs whilst supporters are unable to attend matches. The EFL and its clubs could potentially lose around a third of income from illegal streaming this season, a figure which is potentially much higher when factoring in every illegal stream.
Statistics show that over half of sports fans consume sports content from pirate services at least once a month. Over 7,000 illegal EFL streams have been detected so far this season, with an average of 170 people viewing each stream, totalling almost 1.2million people. Supporters in the UK accessing streams via a VPN are also accessing the stream illegally.
Failure to comply with the terms set out when subscribing to live streams for the EFL is a serious breach and allows the ability to terminate the subscription. The EFL, and clubs streaming through their own services, have very similar rights in their terms and conditions.
The EFL and its clubs take piracy incredibly seriously, working with a specialist security agency to proactively seek out illegal streams on all formats and taking action against businesses and individuals.
Supporters are therefore encouraged to report any illegal streams, or pubs that may be showing EFL content unlawfully, by emailing [email protected]. All emails will be treated confidentially.
STAY AT HOME…
Derby County is continuing to urge supporters to stay away from stadiums when matches are played, with the UK Government advice remaining the same relating to playing behind-closed-doors at this time in the 2020/21 season.
Matches are still being played behind-closed-doors with the safety of supporters, club personnel and the frontline services remaining the principle priority at this time.
Consequently, supporters will not be permitted entry to any area of the stadium and extra security measures around the immediate area including car parks will be in place when staging matches.
Supporters are also urged to maintain social distancing guidelines and avoid congregating outside stadiums or gathering
to watch matches, as part of a new campaign message: ‘When we play, please stay away’ ahead of all EFL matches.
The club and the Derbyshire Constabulary are united in one message to fans - support the Rams and 'Watch From Home'.
