Cardiff City striker Kenwyne Jones is set to miss the Bluebirds’ next two matches after flying home to Trinidad and Tobago following a family tragedy.

The news follows Jones’ personal tribute after he scored Cardiff’s third goal in the 3-1 win over Leeds United on Saturday.

The 30-year-old removed his shirt to reveal a message that read: “RIP Deshon and Chibbi”.

A Cardiff City statement read: “We would like to offer our sincere condolences to Kenwyne Jones following a family tragedy.

“We ask that Kenwyne and his family are given space and privacy at this difficult time.”

Jones is not expected to link back up with the Bluebirds until after the international break later this month and is extremely unlikely to be available for Tuesday’s trip to Bolton and Saturday’s visit to Birmingham.

The Bluebirds striker has found himself out of the starting XI since Russell Slade's appointment despite scoring six goals so far this season.
