Coventry City received a damaging blow yesterday with the news that the club’s exciting play maker James Maddison will be on the sidelines for a couple of months after hobbling off in the sixth minute of the Sky Blues’ 2-1 defeat to Walsall on Saturday, BBC Sport has confirmed.
Maddison also appeared on his Twitter page @JamesMadderz10 to confirm the news that he will be confined to the stands for the next couple of months, after his scan yesterday afternoon.
The injury comes at a bad time for the 18-year-old who has excelled under Tony Mowbray this season, following his impressive early season form.
The teenage midfielder has played a crucial part in Coventry’s good start to the season, with three wins coming from the first four matches, and the news was not welcomed by Sky Blues boss Tony Mowbray who said to the Coventry Telegraph: “The scan hasn’t been completely confirmed yet, but yes, it looks a bad one and that was my immediate thought on Saturday”.
Despite the bad news, Mowbray was also upbeat about the injury, backing himself to ensure Coventry’s form did not take a turn for the worse following 9 points from 12, by saying: “It’s a disappointment, of course, but you have to put up with that kind of thing in football and it’s up to us to find a solution.”
