Stephen Ireland is set for an extended period on the sidelines after the 29-year-old broke his leg in a routine training session on Tuesday morning.
Specific details of the injury have not been released, and as yet there is no current timeline on when Ireland could return to action. Recovery periods vary dependent upon of the severity and type of break but typically 6-8 weeks is generally accepted as a guide in the first instance for a minor fracture. Ireland joins long-term casualties Jack Butland (broken ankle), Afellay (ACL) Marc Wilson and Glen Johnson (both knee) in the treatment room. The 29-year-old has been nothing more than a bit part player this season – all of his 13 Premier League appearances have come from the bench and with only one-year remaining on his current contract - his future at the Britannia remains questionable.
