Cardiff City’s bid to avoid relegation from the Premier League has been hit by the news their influential captain Mark Hudson has been ruled out for the rest of the season because of a hamstring injury.
The 31-year-old central defender only returned to action for the Welsh outfit last month, as he had been recovering from ankle surgery which had sidelined him since last March and forced him to miss the final two months of the Bluebirds’ Championship title-winning campaign.
However the boost of having Hudson back in their ranks has been short-lived after the player confirmed that the hamstring injury which he suffered in his second game back in the defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford was worse than first feared.
Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is preparing his squad for the Premier League visit of Hull City on Saturday, said: “He has had a very bad hamstring injury but we will get him back for next year.”
It is the latest blow for Cardiff City who will also be without club-record £11million Chile international defensive midfielder Gary Medel for a fortnight because of a muscle tear.
The side are currently 19th in the Premier League table and are two points adrift of West Bromwich Albion in the final position of safety with 12 games remaining.
