Cardiff boss Mackay to start Bellamy for Welsh derby

Cardiff City veteran Craig Bellamy is set to start the Welsh derby.

Cardiff City veteran Craig Bellamy is set to start the Welsh derby.

The South Wales Echo says Bellamy is ready to return to the Cardiff City line-up against Swansea as Malky Mackay turns to his captain and talisman for a derby-day boost.

Bellamy was taken out of the Bluebirds frontline ahead of the win at Fulham at the end of last month and has been restricted to cameo appearances from the substitutes’ bench since.

But as Mackay looks to end a three-game stretch without a win it appears he is about to call on Bellamy’s leadership and experience to help his side overcome the threat of arch-rivals Swansea City.
