Possible Reid set-back

15 October 2012

City boss Phil Parkinson has revealed that flying winger Kyel Reid could now be sidelined for longer than initially thought with his current groin injury.

The Bantams originally believed that Reid would be sidelined for six weeks after suffering a tear in his groin muscle but further checks on the injury now suggest he could be looking at nearer ten weeks out.

Reid has already been missing for just under two weeks after suffering the injury in his right groin during City's match at Rochdale at the beginning of the month.

A ten-week long rest and recovery period for the winger would unfortunately see him ruled out of action for Parkinson's men until into December.

"Reidy is still going to be a while off yet unfortunately," said Parkinson.

"The specialist feels it's going to be more like ten weeks out rather than six.

"Gary Jones is also still going to be a few weeks off a return as well.

"People are talking about us bringing someone in now (on loan), that might well happen but we won't do it for the sake of it. 

"It has to be the right person if we are to bring someone in.

"We'll have a sit down on Monday and Tuesday to assess our options. 

"The way Garry (Thompson) and Zavon (Hines) played when they came off the bench on Saturday though, we may already have the options within our squad."
