Clark Left Upset By Packwood Leg Break.

Clark Left Upset By Packwood Leg Break.

Birmingham manager Lee Clark was upset by the injury to teenager Will Packwood who broke his fibula and tibia during the 1-1 FA Cup draw with Leeds United.

It was just a collision between the 19 year old and Luciano Becchio, but the Blues manager said that he heard the crack from the bench.

The youngster will now be ruled out for the rest of the season after promising so much in the short time he has had in a Birmingham shirt.

Clark told Sky Sports: 'It took the gloss off a fantastic performance. Will's young team-mates and friends are distraught; they were in tears out there.

'We will give him as much care and support as possible and have him back fit and strong for next season.

'We should be celebrating a fantastic performance by my young players, but this is a real downer.

'I heard the snap and was hoping it was a shin pad. It was an innocuous one with two players going for the ball.'
