McCormack Blow For Cardiff City

McCormack Blow For Cardiff City

Cardiff City have been hit by the news that 14 goal top goalscorer Ross McCormack has suffered another hamstring injury after limping out of Saturday's 2-0 victory over Preston North End.

mcCormack had not long since recovered from a previous hamstring pull, sustained during a 2-1 home defeat against Wolves. However, he progresed well in training and returned to the first team until this latest set-back although manager Dave Jones was quick to confirm this was a new injury and not a recurrance of the previous problem.

While the loss of McCormack is obviously a big blow, we are fortunate to have on-loan Sunderland striker Michael Chopra to call upon - the replacement scored from the spot on Saturday despite having been ill for much of the week - Chops will partner Jay Bothroyd in attack for Cardiff City tonight away at Burnley.
