LEEDS United midfielder Rudy Austin will not miss the rest of the season as was first feared at the weekend after scan results revealed he has cracked a bone in his ankle.

The news will be a big boost to manager Neil Warnock, who expressed fears the Jamaica midfielder had suffered a double fracture after being stretchered off during Saturday’s 6-1 home drubbing at the hands of Watford.

“It’s better news than we first thought,” said Warnock.

“The swelling made it difficult for us to get a full diagnosis until Monday evening. We wish him well in his recovery and hopefully he will be back with us sooner rather than later.”
