Cardiff's Parry out for month

Cardiff's Parry out for month

Paul Parry has been in fantastic form so far this season and has been an integral part of the form that has propelled Cardiff City to the top of the Championship. Parry was widely expected to move on during the summer with Yeovil heavily linked with the Wales International but Parry has been a revelation after overcoming injury problems that saw him miss most of last season.

Parry picked up a thigh injury during the 0-0 draw with Colchester Utd last Saturday and is expected to be out for between 1 and 2 months. The blow leaves Cardiff desperately short of options with regular left winger Joe Ledley drafted inside to cover Stephen McPhail's suspension (2 games remaining). This will mean a first start of the season for seasoned pro Kevin Cooper who is returning to near full fitness after a loan spell with League 1 side Yeovil town. Cooper replaced Malvin Kamara in the final minutes of last weeks game but is seriously lacking in match practice while Willo Flood has failed to recover from his thigh strain and is unavailable.

Boss Dave Jones will struggle to make up the numbers on the bench and may look to one of his youngsters such as Darcy Blake to step up. Fellow reserve team player Curtis McDonald may have been an option on the left wing but is currently on loan with Accrington Stanley so Cooper will play or Darcy Blake / Nick McKoy in the centre with Ledley on the flanks.

The injury crisis comes during a busy festive period for Cardiff amid a dip in form from the squad.
