Coventry City defender Martin Cranie is to undergo a second scan following the rib injury he picked up in the weekend’s game at Oakwell in the 2-0 loss to Barnsley.
Cranie, who joined Coventry City in August 2009 suffered the injury in the first half of the game on Saturday, and is still in pain four days after the incident.
“He’s had an x-ray but he’s still pretty sore,” said City manager Andy Thorn.
“The results didn’t show a break or fracture or anything but he’s in that much pain that we are having to have another one done to scrutinise it even more.”
“They seem to think it might just be really badly bruised but he can hardly move or breathe.”
The centre-back who has made 91 appearances for City in all competitions, scoring once picked up the injury when clearing a corner, colliding with a Barnsley player’s knee.
“Someone went in to him with his knee.
“He didn’t want to come off, saying that he was fine but he cleared a ball early in the second half and he got an elbow right in the same spot and he couldn’t breathe so he had to come off.””
