Cardiff’s 5-0 win against Rotherham on Saturday extended the unbeaten run but it wasn’t all positive as Rhys Healey suffered a serious knee injury that will keep him out for the remainder of the season.

In fact having undergone surgery it has now been confirmed the 22 year old will be out for up to nine months.

Healey had just started to make an impact at Cardiff having been given his chance by Neil Warnock following his return from a loan spell with Newport but he was stretchered off in the win at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday.

Commenting on this Healey injury after the win Warnock was quoted by Sky Sports as saying.

‘It soured everything really. He’s done so well for us, given us a new lease of life. His winner against Burton and getting the penalty against Derby the other night. To miss out on a nothing injury. I think his studs caught in the turf and it’s a crying shame for the young lad.’

The Official Website confirmed this surgery and the fact Healey will face up to nine months out having torn his anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments.
