Cresswell Setback For Whites

A scan confirmed knee ligament damage, reports BBC Radio Leeds, after the former Preston striker went off injured after 25 minutes of last week's 3-1 win against Derby at Elland Road.

Kevin Blackwell believes Cresswell's setback justified his need to have six strikers at the club. "You're going to need four or five who can come in and score goals. We had to go out and get the players," he said.

"Now we have lost Richard Cresswell I don't won' t to be sitting here being smug and saying I told you so, but I am sitting here being smug saying I told you so".
