Cardiff's Johnson: Full Recovery

Cardiff's Johnson: Full Recovery

Cardiff City's dominant defender Roger Johnson looks set to start in tomorrow's Carling Cup tie against West Bromwich Albion, despite the heavy blow he suffered on the weekend.


Johnson tumbled into the path of Preston's Callum Davidson as he smashed home a last-minute equaliser. The Preston NE man's knee collided hard with Johnson's head and the former Wycombe Wanderers man was down for 8 minutes as a neck brace and stretcher were applied.


Johnson recovered in the tunnel and was soon up and about with no visible damage. Cardiff City manager Dave Jones confirmed that Johnson was OK, telling the SW Echo:


'The incident looked worse than it was and thankfully he is OK,"

"He was sitting up after the game and we will check him out today."




Johnson's recovery is welcome for Cardiff as is the news that Glenn Loovens could also be passed fit after resting a sore foot. Club captain Darren Purse could also be back in action soon for the Bluebirds after a knee infection has cleared.



City are in Carling Cup third round action tomorrow, against a strong W.B.A. side. Although not a priority, the cup is useful to gain match fitness for some of our players and the likes of Whittingham, Parry and Gunter could all get a start.
