Pericard earns Bluebirds chance

02 August 2009 05:01
Former Portsmouth and Stoke City striker Vincent Pericard has been handed the chance to earn a permanent contract with Cardiff City. The 26-year-old was a substitute in the Bluebirds' friendly defeat against Valencia on Saturday and impressed boss Dave Jones. "Vincent's done a pre-season at Stoke, but then he didn't play the games," said Jones. "They released him, but Tony Pulis rang us up to say to take a look and we'll do that. He's been out a long time with a ruptured Achilles and there's no harm in looking at someone on a free. "We're helping him and he might help us if we decide he's right for us. If he wins a penalty every week I'll sign him!"
