Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay is hoping that Craig Conway hasn't broken his ankle after their 1-1 draw with Watford.

Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay is hoping for the best after Craig Conway was taken to hospital with a suspected broken ankle.

Conway picked up the injury following a tackle from Jonathan Hogg in the first half of the Bluebirds' 1-1 draw with Watford on Monday and is awaiting X-ray results on the damage.

"We have sent him for an X-ray and we hope he has not broken his ankle," said Mackay.

"I thought it was an appalling and horrendous challenge. It was a scissors tackle. I can't understand the referee's decision on it. It was a sending-off for me.

"I'm disappointed for Craig because he started the game really well. He was having a good go at Carl Dickinson and was looking good."

Conway has played 37 times in all competitions for Cardiff since joining from Dundee United last summer.
