The Blues skipper collided with on-rushing goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski as the pair looked to deal with a Brentford ball in behind, with Chambers helped from the field by the club’s medical staff after receiving treatment on the pitch.

Manager Mick McCarthy revealed post-match that his skipper could miss the rest of the season due to the injury.

“He’s cracked a rib, so no doubt he’ll be in tomorrow telling me he wants to play (against Barnsley on Tuesday) but I doubt he will,” McCarthy added.
