|FOWLER IN CUP FINAL SQUAD|
Cardiff manager Dave Jones expects Robbie Fowler to be 'honest and truthful' as the striker aims for a return in Saturday's FA Cup Final.
Former Liverpool hitman Fowler, 33, has not played for the Bluebirds since December after a hip operation.
But the ex-England star is desperate to play at Wembley against Portsmouth.
Jones, who will pick his team on Thursday, said: "Robbie will be in the squad definitely. He has worked his socks off to get fit.
"Whether he will be up to playing is another thing, but he has three or four days yet to still prove that.
"The only person who will give me that knowledge is Robbie - and he has been around football long enough to be honest and truthful and say 'yeah I am fine'.
"At the moment that is what he is saying, and in training he looks fine, but he can't have any niggles or anything.
"It is important he is right for the game, just as it is for the rest of his playing career, as I don't want to lose him for three or four months.
"Though he is not going to start, he is fighting for a bench place like six or seven others.
"But whoever sits on the bench has to be able to go on at any time - whether it's after one minute or with one minute to go - and be able to perform."
|it makes me feel very interesting to watch the FA cup final....|
he wasn't in the sub.
