Parry to go straight into the starting line up

Last updated : 09 January 2004 By Michael Morris

Paul Parry is set to make his full debut at Ninian park just over 24 hopurs after completing his move to Ninian Park. Parry underwent a full medical yesterday and completed the final details this morning.

Lennie has given enough clues to suggest that Parry will start tomorrow's game against Rotherham. City have been short of options on the left wing and it's no surprise that Parry will start. He has been playing consistently well for Hereford in that position and he is fully match fit and ready to.

The player admitted to being a bit nervous but is ready for the challenge.

"The gaffer has told me I'll be starting, but I'm still not sure he's being serious," Parry told the Echo.

"I still keep thinking he's winding me up.

"I'd love to play against Rotherham and I hope that dream comes true. I'll be nervous, of course I will. But once I get a touch of the ball I'm sure it will be okay.

"I'm not too bothered about how many people will be there, even though I won't have played in front of so many spectators apart from the occasional FA Cup tie. My job now is to show what I can do - and that means producing my best from the start.

"If indeed I am thrown straight in then that suits me. That's far better than hanging around, waiting for my chance and biting my nails."
