Another Blow For Gardner

Another Blow For Gardner

Gary Gardner has suffered another anterior cruciate ligament injury, this time in his right knee, during the recent U21 game against Stoke.

The 20 year old will undergo surgery and is expected to be out for eight to nine months.

Many will remember he suffered the same injury back in 2009 and he'd been working hard to play catch up after his last stretch out, so this will come as a huge blow to the player as he was no doubt looking to really find some form and consistency this season and show everybody what he is capable of doing on the pitch.

Speaking to the Official Site Paul Lambert said.

'It's a blow and it's definitely a blow for the lad but he's very positive and he'll get great attention all the way through his rehab.'

OMG, He is having some torrid luck so far in is fledgling career. Surely it can't get any worse. Good luck Gary, keep positive, you've come back before and will again - stronger. You're still young, so chin up and look forward.

Different one Fear. 99% sure it was his left last time. Right this. Had massive hopes for this lad. He will need a LOT of character. Still, Brian Robson broke his leg twice as a teenager from memory, and he wasn't too bad

Damn it. Great shame, yes he will need character but he'll get every help. Years ago there would be no way back from this, there is now. To do two though and at such a young age is almost unbelievable. Good luck Gary.

Noooo! I really thought he was going to establish himself this year- midfield is the only place we have the depth for the rotation lambert likes to employ. Poor chap must be so hacked off. It was indeed his other knee last time. A real real prospect, what a shame. We're joint top of the league of injuries now I just read!
