BLUES midfielder Sylvain Legwinski could miss the rest of the season after a scan revealed he has severe bone bruising on a foot.

The Frenchman limped off with the injury midway through the first half of Town's win over Luton on Saturday when his replacement Matt Richards netted the clinching goal.

It was expected that the international break would be enough time for Legwinski to regain fitness but he has now been ruled out for the next month.
