WITTON’S goals-scoring legend Mike Moseley suffered a suspected broken leg in his side’s home defeat against Carlton Town on Saturday.
The Albion front man left the field on a stretcher after colliding with the visitors’ goalkeeper Antonio Barcherini in the final minute of the first half.
Moseley, 30, stretched to volley a lofted pass only for his right leg to be met by the full force of the Millers’ custodian as he too ran out to meet the ball.
He was taken to hospital straight from Wincham Park.
His exit overshadowed what was an afternoon to forget for Gary Finley’s depleted play-offs hopefuls, shorn of five regulars through injury and suspension.
They crashed to a 3-0 defeat, marred latter by Peter Heler’s dismissal following his lunge at Carlton captain Grant Brindley.
Moseley’s injury is to the bone above his ankle, the likely result being that he will sit out the remainder of the current season.
