Mark Hudson: Cardiff captain may need surgery on ankle

The 30-year-old defender was forced off at half-time in the Bluebirds' 1-1 draw with Derby with an ankle injury which forced him to miss the victory over Sheffield Wednesday.

"There is a complication and that's something we are looking into," manager Malky Mackay told the South Wales Echo.

"There are conversations needed with our medical people and I can't put a timescale on when Mark is back.

"It looks at least three or four weeks, but we still have to make decisions."

Mackay loaned in Norwich defender Leon Barnett last week and the former West Brom man looks likely to be a regular in the skipper's absence.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
