Stoke defender Robert Huth will be out for at least three weeks after undergoing surgery to treat a knee cartilage problem.
The Potters also remain without winger Marko Arnautovic because of a hamstring injury.
Cardiff boss Malky Mackay is expected to rotate his squad for Wednesday's game.
Peter Odemwingie, Craig Bellamy and Craig Noone could earn recalls to the starting line-up.
Chastening is probably the best word to describe Stoke's 4-0 loss at Goodison Park on Saturday.
The manner, and margin, of defeat will be a concern too - just three times in their six Premier League seasons have they been beaten more heavily (7-0 at Chelsea and 5-0 at both Bolton and Manchester United). It was extremely un-Stoke-like and though they were unfortunate to run into Gerard Deulofeu on a day he was wearing his Genius-In-Training L-plates, City fans must hope such a defeat was an untimely one-off.
There's no question Mark Hughes has upped the entertainment value - as we saw in the 3-2 defeat at Old Trafford, a see-saw 4-4 League Cup tie at Birmingham and 3-3 draw with Swansea.
As exciting as those games have been, worryingly the Potters have won just once in the Premier League since August. A case of "be careful what you wish for"?
This game kicks off a very trying month for Stoke. Before the decorations are down (are yours even up yet?), Chelsea and Manchester United will have visited the Britannia Stadium (the latter in a League Cup tie), while there are also awkward trips to Hull, Newcastle and Tottenham.
December is always a defining month in a club's season - certainly that's how it looks for Stoke.
For Cardiff, back-to-back home games with Manchester United and Arsenal have yielded, unsurprisingly, a solitary point, but the wider picture is none-too-rosy, with just one win in seven matches.
Scoring goals is the perennial problem for a newly-promoted side, and Cardiff have scored more than once on just three occasions in the Premier League.
The return from injury of little-seen summer signing Andreas Cornelius, Danish Superliga top scorer last term, is a welcome one.
However, getting goals in Denmark is one thing - doing so in the Premier League is quite another. I fully expect any Cardiff January signings to be attacking ones.
Malky Mackay has been a manager long enough already to know that games against Manchester United and Arsenal are unlikely to decide whether a club sinks or swims in the Premier League. It's the proverbial cold Wednesday nights at Stoke which do that.

The sides have only met four times before in the top flight, with the most recent encounter a goalless draw at Stoke's Victoria Ground on 14 February 1953.
The Potters are unbeaten in their last six league and cup games against the Bluebirds (W4, D2).

Stoke City
Stoke City have only won one of their last 10 Premier League games (W1, D4, L5).
The Potters are one of three teams yet to score a headed goal this season, along with Tottenham and West Ham.
They have only conceded three goals in six home league games this season. Only Manchester City and Southampton (two goals conceded) have a better defensive record at home.

Cardiff City

Prior to the latest round of matches, only Fulham (83) had allowed more shots on target against them than Cardiff City this season (81).
Victory against Swansea is Cardiff's only win in their last seven league games (W1, D2, L4).
The 3-0 loss to Arsenal was Cardiff's heaviest top-flight home defeat since a 4-0 loss to Leicester in April 1962.
