“Disappointing but understand reasons. Played 10, won six, drawn two, lost two not too shabby though”
He has started 10 games for the club but last played a league match in early November.
Kavanagh told the club's website: "It's always a difficult decision but we have Pascal Chimbonda playing very well and Brad Potts improving all the time.
"We're in a situation where we can't afford to carry three right-backs and Leon was very understanding when I spoke to him."
