York news round up

2 March 2013

Rounding up a number of news snippets following City's trip to York City this weekend...

Striker Nahki Wells was withdrawn just before the hour mark at Bootham Crescent after picking up a 'dead leg' early in the second half. The injury isn't believed to be too serious but it may make him a doubt for next Tuesday's match at Port Vale.

Eagle-eyed supporters at today's encounter with York may have noticed James Meredith, along with fellow Australian Curtis Good, taking part in some light training drills with Head of Sports Science/Fitness Coach Nick Allamby before kick off. 

Meredith is, of course, coming back from a bout of glandular fever which has resulted in the left back being sidelined for City since New Year's Day.

Parkinson commented: "Things are looking a bit better for James now. His blood tests are looking better and things are seemingly going in the right way for him. He is desperate to play, we are desperate for him to play also, but we have to make sure we don't throw him back in too soon. 

"He's had three days of running and a bit of football today, and we'll just build him up gradually. He's a naturally fit lad and as soon as we feel we can get him back out there, we will."

Loanee winger Blair Turgott has returned to parent club West Ham United.

The young winger's current loan deal at the Coral Windows Stadium was due to expire this Sunday but City agreed to let him return to West Ham early to play in a development squad fixture against Manchester United on Friday.

Good, another loan player whose deal expires on Sunday, is also expected to return to his own parent club, Newcastle United.

Parkinson added: "Blair did really well for us and I am sure he is going to be a great player. He wasn't a moment's problem during his time here and we really do wish him all the best in the future. He's a good lad and he did well for us during the periods he was involved."
