Peltier Facing Months Out After Shoulder Blow

Peltier Facing Months Out After Shoulder Blow

Cardiff City defender Lee Peltier is facing “a few months” out after dislocating his shoulder in Saturday’s 5-0 defeat to Man City. The Bluebirds right-back suffered the injury during the early stages of the second half and was stretchered off at Cardiff City Stadium to be replaced by Jazz Richards.

The 31-year-old was making his first Premier League start since the opening weekend of the season after losing his place in the team to Bruno Ecuele Manga.
“He dislocated it I think. That sort of compounded the afternoon really,” said Cardiff boss Neil Warnock.

“I think he’ll be out for a few months. That’ll leave us a bit thin but hey-ho.”
Pelter, who cannot be replaced in City’s 25-man Premier League squad until January, later tweeted a message to Bluebirds fans: “Thank you all for the support and messages, appreciated a lot.”

Warnock’s other option at right-back is Ecuele Manga, who is naturally a centre-back but had started four matches at right-back before reverting to central defence on Saturday.
