Injury blows for Bluebirds

Published Add your comment

Cardiff boss Dave Jones has revealed strikers Ross McCormack and Kelvin Etuhu will be sidelined for longer than originally feared.

The Bluebirds manager has confirmed Scotland international McCormack's hamstring tear has not healed and he will not return until October.

Etuhu, on-loan from Manchester City, was given a stress test under anaesthetic on his ankle ligament injury on Friday.

Jones told the club's official website: "Ross will need a few more weeks in rehab, so we're looking at mid-October before he's back. He felt a slight twinge when he trained and it's knocked him back a couple of weeks.

"Kelvin is having a test and after that a decision will be taken on whether the ankle will be pinned or put in a cast.

"It's a bad one and we'll have to wait and see what Manchester City's specialist has to say. We hope it won't be pinned."
