Andreas Cornelius to make starting debut in the West Country

Malky Mackay has named a near-enough full strength starting eleven to kick-off pre-season at Forest Green Rovers' New Lawn on Wednesday evening (kick-off 7.45pm).

With a half-time rotation of the initial eleven anticipated, the strong Bluebirds traveling contingent are set to see full use of the squad as the build up to the Barclays Premier League kick-off at West Ham draws nearer.

Starting Cardiff City XI to face Forest Green Rovers: Lewis, McNaughton, Ralls, Connolly, Turner, Smith, Mutch, Kim, Conway, Cornelius, Maynard. Subs: Marshall, Lappin, Taylor, Hudson, Nugent, Noone, Cowie, Whittingham, Bellamy, Mason, Campbell, Gestede, Kiss.
