Woods 'Gutted' For Ben Watson

19 February 2014

Reds midfielder Martin Woods has revealed he is 'gutted' for Wigan Athletic's Ben Watson, after it was confirmed he suffered a broken leg last night.

Woods and Watson collided in a 50-50 challenge at the DW Stadium last night but, unfortunately, it resulted in a double fracture to the fibula and tibia bone of Watson's right leg.

Speaking to barnsleyfc.co.uk, Woods said, "I'm absolutely gutted for the boy. I just went for a shot and I don't even know how it happened. It wasn't nice to see and I'm absolutely gutted for the lad. I contacted Ben last night and I will keep in touch with him throughout his recovery.

"I wish him a speedy and full recovery."
