Alan Curbishley has confirmed that Freddie Ljungberg will miss the last two games of the season.

Curbishley, talking after today's 2-2 draw with Newcastle confirmed that the Swede suffered a broken rib during the game.

And the race will now be on for Ljungberg to recover in time to take part in the European Championships, which take place later this summer.

"We think he's cracked a rib," revealed Curbishley. "Taylor came down on him - I think he was trying to wriggle through and went over.

"I don't think he was trying to hurt him but he's obviously landed on him. He's very, very sore.

"It's the Euros round the corner for him and he's got a month to recover. But he's going to need that."
