Bristol City goalkeeper Elliott Parish has joined Newport County on loan for two months.

The former Cardiff shot-stopper has made 26 appearances for the League One side this season but has been replaced for the last three games by Frank Fielding.

His arrival at Newport until March 9 is a huge boost for the Exiles who are without regular number one Lenny Pidgeley after he suffered ankle ligament damage which will sideline him for between two to four weeks.
