Moritz fit for Cardiff

Brazilian midfielder returns to full training, though Jermaine Beckford remains sidelined

After a brief spell on the sidelines, Andre Moritz has returned to full training and is available for selection ahead of the weekend’s game against Cardiff City.

The Brazilian missed out on last weekend’s trip to Reading with a knee injury sustaining in the game against Nottingham Forest.

But after a successful return to first team training on Thursday morning the Brazilian is in contention to feature in this weekend’s FA Cup with Budweiser fourth round tie at the Reebok.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Dougie Freedman said: “Andre Moritz missed the game at Reading last week with a slight knee complaint, but he has returned to full training today. He is available for selection.

“Jermaine Beckford will still be missing for us, but other than that we’re in a good position right now.

“We haven’t got a big squad to be dealing with, so there won’t be any real changes to our side.

“The players owe it to our fans to go straight back out there this weekend and turn in a performance.”
