Delph doubtful for season

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish admits it is unlikely midfielder Fabian Delph will play again this season after suffering an ankle injury during his loan spell at Leeds.

Delph saw a specialist on Tuesday to confirm his worst fears that he is facing another lengthy spell on the sidelines. He suffered the latest in a long line of injury blows during last Tuesday's npower Championship clash with Coventry.

McLeish said: "Delph is not fit. I don't know if he will play again this season but he's rolled his ankle sufficiently enough to rule him out (for some time)."
