Alex skipper suffers injury blow

25 January 2010 11:19
The defender was forced off midway through the first half of the 3-0 home win over Darlington on Saturday after falling awkwardly.

"I think he landed on another guy's foot and turned his ankle over and he's done his ankle ligaments. It will keep him out for a few weeks - it will be weeks rather than months," said caretaker boss Dario Gradi.

Clayton Donaldson also had to be substituted after an hour with a hip problem but the severity of the striker's injury is not yet known.

Gradi added: "He got a whack on the hip but we won't be able to evaluate that for a couple of days."
