Warnock saddened by Bromby injury
Leeds manager Neil Warnock was left saddened after defender Leigh Bromby suffered a serious injury against Cardiff City on Saturday.
The 31-year-old faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after rupturing a tendon in his right knee after slipping awkwardly during his side's 1-1 draw at the Cardiff City Stadium.
Bromby required oxygen as he left the field and his manager Warnock believes that he will be without the defender for a long time.
Warnock said: "Leigh has ruptured his patella tendon. He hasn't gone to hospital because he won't save anything now. He will have an operation next week.
"He will be out for a long, long time - I'd be surprised if he is back before Christmas. It could be a year. I'm gutted and disappointed for him because he has just come back in the team and done well."
