Enckelman escapes injury in car smash

Published Add your comment

Cardiff goalkeeper Peter Enckelman revealed he had a lucky escape after walking away unharmed from a car crash on Saturday.

Enckelman came on as a second-half substitute during Sunday`s 2-1 defeat to Ipswich, as a replacement for David Marshall, just 24 hours after the accident.

"My car left the road in very wet conditions on Saturday," he told the club`s official website. "The car may be written off but the important thing is I wasn't hurt, although I was shaken up."

Marshall, meanwhile, is expected to recover from a groin strain ahead of this weekend`s visit of Coca-Cola Championship rivals Preston.
