McNaughton expects quick return
Published : 23 Nov 2009 13:19:00
McNaughton was making his first appearance of the season at Oakwell having finally recovered from the ruptured ankle ligaments he sustained during pre-season. But having thought his injury nightmare was finally over, McNaughton was forced off after just 21 minutes as Cardiff eventually went down 1-0. However, his withdrawal is not thought to be serious and he is hoping to return in time to face Ipswich on Sunday. "I felt my hamstring a little bit. It seized up a little so hopefully I've not pulled it and I will just have to see how it is," he told the South Wales Echo. "It was a nightmare for me really. I don't think it will keep it me out long-term but it's just another one of those frustrating little niggles. I've worked so hard to get fit and then you get something like this happen and it's just so frustrating for you. "I'll probably get a scan on it just to make sure it is nothing major and then take things from there. Hopefully I'll just need to rest it for a few days, but it is another one of those things. This is my worst season ever. It's just been a total nightmare to be honest with you."
