It is keep your fingers crossed times fellow Villans.

Danish international Martin Laursen, plagued by injuries in the last few seasons, limped out of the game against Chelsea last night with suspected medial ligament damage.

Martin O’Neill spoke about the luckless defender who had put in a man-of-the-match display against Blackburn Rovers at the weekend:

‘He’s left the place on crutches and it looks like it might be ligament damage. We’ll have to keep our fingers crossed.’

Inspirational skipper Gareth Barry also limped off but hopefully his injury isn’t as bad as first feared, reports last night were suggesting a hip problem but it seems he took a knock: O’Neill added: ‘He took a knee to the back and it’s very sore. We’ll have to wait and see how long it will be a problem for.’

Good wishes to both players, especially Laursen who really does deserve to cut a break after coming back from his career threatening knee injuries.

  • Gutted for Laursen. Unfortunately, if it is medial ligaments, I think this may be the last we see of him. On the positive side, it gives Ridgewell and the slayer of all things blue a chance to impress. That is the only positive side though

  • you have to feel really sorry for the guy.. hope it is not too bad and he recovers reasonably quickly…………

  • geordie depends on the extent of the damage, if pulled or twisted it can be sorted, if damaged might need surgery, but with todays techniques and knowledge, stands a good chance of full recovery, good luck to the pair of them. UTV

  • If any footballer ever deserved a huge slice of luck it surely has to be Martin Laursen. What a class act he is, both on and off the pitch. With Gareth I certainly hope the back injury doesn’t wreck his chances of an England call up. Good luck to both of
