Injury hampers Parnaby progress

A hamstring injury sustained last weekend could end of the season of Middlesbrough FC defender Stuart Parnaby.
Middlesbrough FC defender Stuart Parnaby could be out for the rest of the season after ripping a hamstring in the 3-2 defeat of Leeds United AFC at the weekend. A scan has revealed that the tear is more serious than first thought.

First-team regular
The English Under-21 international has been a fixture for Steve McClaren's side since breaking in to the first team when Robbie Stockdale was sidelined with a foot injury in October, missing just two out of 22 games after making his debut against Leeds on 26 October. Parnaby was rewarded for his fine form with a contract extension until 2007 which he signed last week.

European target
The news is a major blow for the Teeside club, whose hopes of qualifying for the UEFA Cup have been revitalised by the return from injury of Brazilian midfield player Juninho Paulista.
