Russell Slade: Cardiff City manager mulls over winger loan move

Craig Noone in action for Cardiif
Craig Noone has missed Cardiff City's last two matches

Cardiff City manager Russell Slade has hinted he could bring in a winger during the emergency loan window.

Winger Craig Noone has missed the last two games, including Saturday's 0-0 draw against MK Dons, because of a rib injury.

The emergency loan window opens on Tuesday, 9 February and Slade is considering his options.

"We just have to see if there's anything available," Slade said.

"My only concern is with Pilky [Anthony Pilkington] playing up the top at this moment in time because Craig's out at the minute.

"There's a slight hairline crack on the rib so it's about how pain free you can play with it

"Maybe in the next couple of weeks it will be ok but he [Noone] could miss the next couple of games.

"We've lost a lot of goals out of the team recently and Craig's contributed six on his own."

Cardiff remain ninth in the Championship and five points behind sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday, who occupy the final play-off spot.

The Bluebirds are away to bottom of the table Charlton Athletic next Saturday.
