Lennie Lawrence is set to give Paul Parry a taste of Division 1 football just hours after signing from the Nationwide Conference.

Parry is due to complete his medical today and providing all is well he will start on Saturday against Rotherham.

"Normally Paul would be named in an 18 or 19-man squad but with Robbo out we are missing a left-sided player, so he will go straight into the team against Rotherham," Lawrence told the Western Mail.

"Circumstances at this club mean he will get his shot at playing on Saturday - and it's up to him to take that chance.

"He is a Welsh lad so joining Cardiff is the move of a lifetime for him."

Good luck to Paul and here's to a successful future at Cardiff City.
