Castaway Conway Excels For Cardiff City Reserves

Cardiff City's outcast winger Craig Conway enjoyed an impressive outing for the Bluebirds development squad last night, scoring one goal and creating another as City beat Charlton Athletic. Aside from his role in both goals, Conway posed a constant threat and was clearly our most dangerous player.

After providing the only natural width last season, Conway has been relegated to very much a back-up player this season. Malky Mackay identified the lack of widemen as a weakness, and brought in Bellamy, Smith, Kim Bo Kyung and the impressive Craig Noone. Those arrivals have seen Conway lose his place in the squad, and he has not been named even amongst the substitutes lately.

Conway is not a flying winger by any means but remains a very good footballer with two good feet. He can operate on either flank, and already showed at times last season that he can be a good player in the Championship. His season was ended by an ankle injury early in 2012, but 'The Bull' has returned to fitness and is pushing for a recall.

Unfortunately for Conway, his chances will be limited even after showing good form. Noone, Kim and Smith look set to battle it out for the wide berths with Bellamy operating in attack following the devastating injury to Nicky Maynard. Conway may be forced to try and work his way back into the substitutes, and then try to make an impression from the bench. On last nights showing, he is certainly up-for-it and remains a useful option for the Bluebirds.
