Bothroyd Strikes Gold With 'Bloody Boot'

Cardiff City striker Jay Bothroyd popped up with a late winner to stun the Coventry crowd who gave their former striker a tough time on his return.

It was a perfect way for Bothroyd to respond, but he was somewhat fortunate to be on the pitch after suffering for much of the game with a foot injury. If Chopra and Bellamy had not been scheduled to come off in the second half, Jay might not even have been on the pitch!

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones confirmed afttr the game that he had been stamped on, but quickly altered that to 'caught'. He also told BBC Sport:

'It was a cut. Jay had blood pouring through his boot.'

'We just injected it with something, patted him on the head and kicked him back out.'



Thankfully, the injury does not look serious, and the in-form striker will be patched up in time for the next game. Dave Jones' management of Bothroyd has been nothing short of miraculous. He has managed to extract the best from an undoubtedly fine player, but he has converted Bothroyd from a classy but inconsistent performer to an all-round striker who contributes to every phase and looks for all money, a simply brilliant centre-forward.
