Fowler in final squad

Veteran striker has chance of Wembley appearance

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones has confirmed that Robbie Fowler is in his FA Cup final squad.

The Liverpool striking legend is yet to play in 2008 because of a hip problem - which needed surgery.

The 33-year-old has trained this week and he is now in with a chance of making the bench for the match with Portsmouth on Saturday.

Bluebirds chief Dave Jones would only confirm that he has brought Fowler with him and he was in his 18-man squad.

"He is in the 18," he told Sky Sports News as the Cardiff squad arrived in London.

Jones is likely to leave it until Saturday morning before deciding whether Fowler will be involved.
