Edworthy Joins The Casualty List

Marc Edworthy was undergoing a hospital scan on his injured leg today, but hopes are high that his injuries are not so serious as first thought.

X-rays revealed no bone damage to his right knee and ankle, but he was having a scan as a double check.

The player said:

"My injury was the result of a silly challenge for the ball on my part. I seemed to catch my studs in the turf and I heard a cracking noise as I fell.

"I thought I had done something serious, but I am happier after the X rays. Hopefully the scan will also bring me a positive result and I can get some idea when I can set a target for a return.

"Obviously I would like to think I could play on Saturday at Sheffield Wednesday. I have been enjoying my football this season and no player likes to miss any matches."

Edworthy was carried off by stretcher in the 70th minute of Saturday’s match against Newcastle United and was immediately whisked to hospital.

It was 3-0 to Coventry when he left the pitch and he was back in time to help his teammates celebrate their 4-1 win.

Manager Gordon Strachan will be keeping a close eye on Edworthy’s progress and that of Gary Breen. The latter injured his knee playing for the Republic of Ireland and he would be the obvious replacement if Edworthy cannot make it.

Coventry’s list of absentees is mounting. David Burrows is still under suspension and Breen, Mo Konjic, Laurent Delorge, Runar Normann, Noel Whelan and John Aloisi are injured.

Youssef Chippo will miss the match against Watford because he will be serving an automatic one match ban for five bookings.
