What a bad luck! It's definitely a blow for the team but even bigger for him personally because he has just started establishing himself as a regular first-teamer. Wish him a speedy recovery.

He was looking good in the games that he had started in. Getting more game time, this has basically started from the tackle in the game against Havant and their manager thinks he over reacted and made a meal of it! Now he is missing a load of the season now.

Gutted for him, was looking forward to seeing more of him this season, sounds like he will be back towards the end of the season though could be vital for us.

How unlucky can you be - for him and for the team just as he was becoming a big threat to the opposition. Wish him a speedy recovery and look forward to his return in April.
