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.’
