Doncaster keeper Andy Warrington is out for at least three months with a broken leg.The delight of Doncaster's Carling Cup victory over Manchester City was tempered by the news that number one Andy Warrington is out for at least three months with a broken leg.
The 29-year-old broke his tibia in a challenge for the ball with City's Nedum Onuoha, with the former York keeper replaced by eventual penalty shoot-out hero Jan Budtz.
Onuoha was initially sent off for the challenge on Warrington but referee Graham Salisbury has since rescinded the red card.
Warrington suffered a clean break in the incident, but his leg has been put into a cast which will remain in place until Christmas.
"It was a clean break that meant it was not easily detected at the ground, but because it is a clean one no extra work to put the bone in place was needed and the doctors decided just to put it in a pot," Donny physio Baz Windle told the club's website.
"Unfortunately it will stay that way for three months before we can get it off.
"After the pot is off we can start his rehab, but he will play again this season."
