Fractured Larynx To Keep Roger Out

Fractured Larynx To Keep Roger Out

Cardiff City's defensive lynchpin Roger Johnson is back in full training but looks set to miss tomorrow's big clash with play-off hopefuls Preston North End at Deepdale.


The fall-out from City's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace continues with Claude Davis hauled in front of an FA disciplinary panel following the nasty incident in which Roger Johnson was left spitting blood and needing a 2 night stay in hospital.


Darren Purse deputised during the 3-1 win against Burnley, he was solely responsible for Bunrley's equaliser after gifting a goal to Robbie Blake courtesy of a woeful back-pass. That moment aside however, Purse did reasonably well and put in some towering headers for his side.


Whilst Roger is a massive loss, we are lucky to have someone like Darren Purse to call on in these circumstances and the former WBA man will see it as a final chance to earn the contract extension he desperately wants.
