Owen Coyle on Jay Rod Injury Blow

Owen Coyle on Jay Rod Injury Blow

Jay Rodriguez injured his right ankle in a reserve match against Hull City at the Crown Ground last night after landing awkwardly following a challenge in the air.

He had to be stretchered-off and a scan today revealed more bad news for Owen Coyle after already losing Chris McCann and Martin Paterson to injury in the last week or so.

Rodriguez will now follow Chris and Pato and face being out of action for three months after scans revealed he had fractured his ankle.

Owen Coyle speaking to the Official Site had this to say about the grim news:

'We are devastated for the lad and our primary concern is for him. He's obviously an integral part our first-team squad and it's another blow to lose him for three months on the back of the other injuries we have had.However, I know Jay will get the best possible care under our team of physios and we look forward to him coming back as soon as possible to play a part in the remainder of our season.'

Poo happens! Oh well we are now getting a simpler choice up front with just Nugent, Fletcher and Thompson to choose from at the moment. Thommo got a brace in the Hull reserve game and we might now see more of him at least from the bench.

Sad news. Think I'm in a minority of one who doesn't really rate this lad from the little I've seen so far but I'm happy to be proved wrong and wish him well in his recovery.

The squad is looking strained already - hope there aren't any more injuries or suspensions, or we could be struggling...

Commiserations to Jayrod, Patto and McCann. When people bore on about "Bloody footballers', they never think about this side of it.

Yep JJ these young lads must be gutted to miss so much of a season in the top flight. Let's hope we can stay up so they will get plenty of opportunity to put that right. I thought excatly the same thing about this 3 months thing, it seems all injuries involve up to 3 months now with the exception of cruciate ligament which is always a season off. I was actually surprised when they said Pato had torn his cartilage, Carilage is a word you hardly ever here these days whereas in the 60s/70s the only injuries you ever seemed to hear about were broken legs and cartilage problems. I think someone invented the term 'Cruciate'in the 80s or summat! :-)

Poor Jay, I do really rate him, I've seen him score some really composed goals and the one against Bristol City in last game of season was a stunner I was sat right behind it. I was hoping he would get a run out and bang in a few.

Bristol City skutter? Hopefully Jay will get back to fitness for the end of the season. I do not think he would have played much this season but it does now mean we are only 1 striker injury away from a pickle.

Guess we have to last to Christmas with no more injuries upfront, unless we revert to 4-5-1
