Cort Injury Blow

Last updated : 06 July 2004 By Andy Beill
The centre back signed on a free transfer from Southend has fractured a toe, and is set to be out for around 4 weeks, meaning he will miss the entire pre-season preperations.

The new season kicks off on 7th August with City taking on Bournemouth at the KC Stadium, but it looks unlikely that the 24-year-old will be match fit.

Peter Taylor does still have regular centre back pair Damien Delaney and Marc Joseph so Cort's injury shouldn't set his plans back too much.
