Bromby blow for Leeds
Leeds fear defender Leigh Bromby could be out for up to a year after suffering a serious knee injury in the 1-1 draw against Cardiff.
Bromby required oxygen as he was carried off on a stretcher after rupturing a tendon in his right knee having slipped awkwardly in the 28th minute.
Manager Neil Warnock said: "Leigh has ruptured his patellar 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.
"He was in agony and required oxygen because he had passed out. But the Cardiff fans were fantastic. They were very supportive straight away and the ref showed he knew what he was doing. I want to say a big thank you to everyone for the way they reacted."
Joe Mason netted his third goal in five games to put the Bluebirds ahead in the 41st minute but Luciano Becchio's second-half header - his 11th goal of the season - ensured the match finished level.
