Bothroyd Eases Cardiff City Worries

Bothroyd Eases Cardiff City Worries

Cardiff City striker Jay Bothroyd has confirmed that the hamstring problem that saw him limp off in the 8th minute against Preston is not serious and that he will only be out of action for one game.

Bothroyd suffered a hamstring tear, but after scans yesterday and consultation with the Bluebirds medical staff, the injury has been classified as 'grade one'. This means he will miss a week's action in order to allow recovery time, and also confirms the club made exactly the right decision to replace him on Saturday.

Andy Keogh is the likely man to replace him for the trip to Middlesbrough after working hard and scoring a late equaliser against Preston. He will partner either Michael Chopra or Craig Bellamy in attack - with all three looking to prove a prove a point after recent criticisms.

Bothroyd will then return for the home clash against Burnley, with Dave Jones and the Cardiff City fans grateful to have the crucial frontman available over the busy Christmas period.
