Carr Blow For Blues

Carr Blow For Blues

Bit of a blow for Birmingham City this week when it was announced that skipper Stephen Carr will be out of action for at least six months.

Earlier in the week the defender's knee began to get very swollen and the only option was to go in for surgery, this will rule him out for much of the current season.

Carr suffers the setback just as he was about to return to action after he managed to shake off a thigh problem.

Now manager Lee Clark confirmed that it would be March at the very earliest before the 36 year old could be considered for a place in the side.

He told the Birmingham Mail: 'Monday and Tuesday he was training really well prior to the Peterborough United game and we had pencilled him in to play, and he was really positive.

'Prior to the game he felt a little problem in the knee so we ruled him out.

'And over the course of the next few days it became really swollen, so we got him down to London for an appointment with the specialist who worked with him last season who went inside the knee and found quite a bit of damage.'


Clark added: 'It's horrific news. It's huge blow for the club, but more importantly for the lad himself. He's going to be out for a minimum of six months.'
