GOALKEEPER Nikki Bull has been ruled out with a thigh injury with Wanderers forced to sign an emergency stopper for their game at Exeter tonight.
Bull has been suffering with the injury for several weeks but has been ordered to rest after playing through the pain in recent weeks.
The 30-year-old has been a constant in the Wycombe team since joining in 2010.
With teenage back-up Matt Ingram going under the knife on Monday to repair damaged knee cartilage, it has forced Blues boss Gary Waddock to swoop for 22-year-old Cardiff City goalkeeper Elliot Parish on a short-term emergency loan deal.
The former Aston Villa trainee will make his debut against the Grecians tonight.
Waddock told the club website: "Bully's been struggling for a while now but he's an important player for us and we wanted him out there. However, it has come to the time now where he needs to rest so it can heal properly. But we're hopeful it's only a short-term problem."
It is the latest injury jinx to hit Wanderers with Danny Foster, Marvin McCoy, Dave Winfield, Matt Bloomfield, Dennis Oli and Sam Wood all struck with injuries and centre-back Leon Johnson suspended for the trip to Exeter tonight.
