Saddlers skipper out until October

Published Add your comment

Walsall captain Darren Byfield has been ruled out for at least two weeks with a knee injury.

The striker limped off during Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Swindon due to a bruised knee, while he has also struggled with an Achilles problem during the season.

"The scan revealed bruising to his knee. Darren will be out for around two weeks," manager Chris Hutchings told the club's official website.

But, despite being disappointed, Hutchings feels he has enough striking options to cope with his skipper's absence. "It's a bit of a blow but we do have attacking options," he said.

Byfield is expected to miss the Saddlers' next three npower League One games against Hartlepool, Leyton Orient and Yeovil.
