Bluebirds defender Dave Nieskens picked up a knee injury in the game at Tranmere Rovers last weekend, he will see a specialist next week to determine the extent of the injury but initial assessments put him out for several weeks.
Fellow defender Thierry Audel picked broke his arm in training yesterday and also faces a spell on the sidelines. He is expected to be out for at least 8 weeks subject to a follow up consultation next week.
