Advance Flood Warning!

Advance Flood Warning!

Cardiff City midfielder Willo Flood is set to make his comback in a reserve team game tomorrow against Yeovil town.

Flood has been out for several weeks and has yet to start a game for Cardiff City. After joining from Manchester City in the summer, Flood had been kept out of the side by the exellent early season form of Joe Ledley and Paul Parry but impressed when he came on as substitute. Flood scored the winning goal against Leeds Utd when he broke the length of the pitch to score in the final minutes.

Flood was set to gain his first start after a Stephen McPhail red card against Colchester but the ban was overturned and Flood had to wait for his chance. After having a quality player such as Flood on the bench for Cardiff, it was inevitable that the player himself was injured when we really needed him. Recent injury to Paul Parry and suspension to McPhail (red card vs Stoke City) have meant that Kevin McNaughton was played out of position during the 2-2 draw with Ipswich.

Flood however has now returned to full training following a thigh strain that has sidelined him for a month. If he comes through tomorrow's reserve team game unscatched, he may go straight into the line-up to face managerless Hull City at the weekend. Happy to play in the centre or wide on either flank, it was not hard to see early season that Flood was itching to play and impress and that feeling is only likely to have grown after his move in order to gain regular first team action!

He would slot into central midfield with Ledley reverting to a more familiar left wing position and Flood would be charged with providing some of the creativity lacking in recent weeks.

From what Cardiff fans have seen so far from Flood, we look forward to his first start in anticipation.
