Thorne and Prior aiming for reserve team return

Last updated : 11 August 2003 By Michael Morris
Peter Thorne (foot) and Spencer Prior (left)(cartlidge) are both hoping to play in Cardiff City's opening reserve team fixture against Yeovil Town on August 20th.

Gavin Gordon could also be available for that game after resuming training after a hamstring problem. Scott Young is still recovering from his back problems and is gaining fitness all the time but no date has been selected for his return.

Gary Croft is City's other long term injury worry. He is still several weeks away from playing as he recovers from his appendix operation.

Rhys Weston is receiving treatment on his ankle after a knock at Rotherham. It's not known the extent of the injury.
