Nicky Maynard will not be rushed back - Malky Mackay

Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay says stricken striker Nicky Maynard will be given time and the "best care" to recover fully from injury.

Maynard, 25, requires surgery on a knee ligament injury picked up in Cardiff City's 2-0 win at Millwall on Tuesday.

Mackay believes Maynard, who joined Cardiff on transfer deadline day in August, is unlikely to play against this season.
