Published Add your comment

Stoke defender Marc Wilson has confirmed he suffered a broken fibula in Saturday's 0-0 Barclays Premier League draw with Sunderland at the Britannia Stadium.

Wilson injured his left leg as he made a challenge on Black Cats striker Steven Fletcher just a few minutes into the second half and the Republic of Ireland international had to be carried off on a stretcher.

Potters boss Tony Pulis said in his post-match press conference that Wilson had been taken straight to hospital. And writing on his Twitter account, the player later said: "Have broke my fibula. Hopefully I can make a speedy recovery. Thanks every1 for the support. Really appreciate it."
