Yeovil manager Russell Slade has played down reports that former Norwich City trainee Darren Way has broken both his arms and legs but says the midfielder "is not in a good way".

Way, 29, who was at the Canaries between 1998 and 2000, was injured in a car crash on Wednesday afternoon but the severity of his injuries is yet to be determined, although the club have confirmed that he has suffered "broken bones".

Slade told the club's official website, www.ytfc.co.uk: "Darren was pleased to see me but obviously not in a good way. His parents and wife were also with him, as they have been since the accident.

"I would like to point out that contrary to reports on the Swansea website, Darren has not broken both his arms and both his legs.
