INJURY NEWS: "It’s the curse of the left-sided centre-half. It's a blow, but we have to get on with it." - Coventry City's Tony Mowbray

11 March 2016

Centre-back, Baily Cargill is out for two-three months after sustaining ankle ligament damage against Rochdale...

Bournemouth loanee, Baily Cargill has suffered damage to his ankle ligaments against Rochdale last weekend and will continue his rehab at his parent club.

The 20-year old defender had made a bright start to life in Coventry, registering his first professional goal in his home debut against Bury and claiming two ‘man of the match’ awards in four League One appearances. 

Cargill had to be substituted at half-time against Rochdale after injuring his ankle in a tackle and Tony Mowbray has revealed that he is unlikely to return to the West Midlands this season.

Mowbray said: “Baily Cargill looks to have finished for us for the season.

“He is between two and three months out, and there are only eight/nine weeks worth of the season left. We should move on without Baily at this moment in time.

"He is back at Bournemouth, his scan showed quite bad ligament damage. 

“It’s the curse of the left-sided centre-half. It is a blow, but we have to get on with it and find a way to start winning football matches.” 

CCFC wish Baily Cargill the best of luck with his recovery.
