Sam Wood has been ruled out for up to 10 weeks after scan results revealed he has sprained his knee ligaments.
“He’s got a slight groin problem,” said Waddock. “He’s had it during the course of pre-season, but the only real cure is rest so we may give him a few days off.”
The club would like to wish Sam all the best in his recovery.
“He had the scan results yesterday (Wednesday) – it’s not as bad as we first feared but it’s still a nasty injury and he will be out for a while.”
Blues boss Gary Waddock said: “We are disappointed for Woody because he’s done very well since joining the club.
The all-action midfielder was replaced just before half-time in Tuesday’s clash with Gillingham at Adams Park.
