Cardiff City's Bothroyd Plays Through The Pain

Cardiff City striker Jay Bothroyd has spoken of his current injury trouble but is happy to continue playing through the pain following a fracture to his kneecap.

Whilst not 100% fit, Bothroyd has been in good form of late and is absolutely crucial to the way we play. There is no other player at the club able to link play, hold the ball up and offer a genuine attacking threat both in the air and on the ground. Warren Feeney, Ross McCormack and Josh Magennis are different sorts of players and would require a change in our tactics.

Bothroyd though is happy as thing stand and told BBC Sport:

'Pain is temporary, quitting lasts for ever, I'm definitely playing through the pain barrier, I have to.'

'The manager wants to pick his best 11 every week and at the moment I'm involved in that so I want to keep it going.'

'The physios and the doctor have assured I won't do any long-term damage. It's just a case of resting at certain periods but at the moment I haven't got much time to rest.




hilst is it somewhat worrying that we rely so heavily on one player, Bothroyd has proved an exceptional buy and a bargain at 300k. He had been happy to leave the goalscoring to Peter Whittingham and Michael Chopra but weighed in with a goal and won a penalty in the 4-3 win over Sheffield United.
