Cardiff City Rocked By Ledley Injury Blow
Cardiff City's already beleaguered squad has been hit by another sucker punch with the news that key midfielder Joe Ledley has been ruled out by the finger injury sustained on Saturday.
Ledley entered a challenge on the touchline in front of the bob-bank, there was little contact but Joe was in obvious agony and Matt Lawrence immediately called on the physio. After a few minutes, Dave Jones was informed that a substitution would be needed only for the dislocated finger to be 'popped' back in - Ledley actually scoring as he re-entered the field.
Unfortunately, the finger will need surgery meaning that Joe could be out for up to a month - meaning he will miss several key games including the upcoming trip to Swansea City.
Hoepfully Joe will be back sooner but any surgical procedure requires some time on the sidelines. Paul Parry is likely to take his place meaning that youngsters Darcy Blake, Jon Brown and Aaron Morris will be the only cover.
