David Murphy out for 5 months

Post  hootie63 on Wed Nov 21, 2012 10:32 pm

David Murphy is set to undergo exploratory knee surgery tomorrow and will be sidelined for a minimum of six weeks.
As a result of the left-back's lay-off, Paul Robinson has had his current Blues deal extended until January 27.

Murphy limped off during last Saturday's home defeat to Hull City and will now go under the knife to discover the full extent of a cartilage problem

Of even greater concern to Blues boss Lee Clark is the fact that the worst case scenario could see the 28-year-old out of action for five months.

The loss of Murphy comes on the back of long-term injuries to defenders Stephen Carr (knee) and Paul Caddis (shoulder). Pablo Ibanez has just recovered from a broken foot and Curtis Davies is still undergoing treatment for an ankle problem.

“We won’t know exactly what the situation is until Murph has had the operation on Thursday evening,” said Blues boss Clark.

“He’s damaged his cartilage and it could be anything from six weeks to five months. Obviously we are hoping that it is not very serious because we all know he’s a very important player to us. We will have to wait and see.”

Robinson will now remain at St. Andrew's for an additional two months having recently played a major part in Clark's plans. Since joining the club in September, the former West Bromwich Albion and Bolton Wanderers player has made eight appearances. Although he is predominantly a left-back, he has recently been used as both a right-back and centre-half.

Clark has been delighted with Robinson's commitment and he feels he is a valuable asset to the club both on and off the field with the experience he brings.

“I think we have all seen how well Robbo has done, and in three different positions,” added Clark. “Since coming in he has played an important part for us and been very consistent in his performances.

“We were always looking to extend the contract for a longer term and obviously with Murph now having surgery, he’s going to remain a vital player for us.”

Murphy aint looked right for much of this season tbh.

Paul Robinson has had his stay extended till January.

Our back 4 has been decimated, only Caldwell is a fit regular !

Bad news, we now have no full backs capable of posing a serious attacking threat, though it would explain his shite form recently.

That have been the big problem for us all season. To many changes in the back four, either trough injuries or Lee Clarks changes.
