It was bad news for Clarets fans and Danny Ings today. Ings picked up a knee injury in the recent friendly against Rochdale at Spotland with Eddie Howe fearing the worst.
He has now had the results of a scan back and although it could have been more serious he will still miss the opening three-six months of the new season with a torn cartilage. The cartilage in his left knee will require surgery to fix leaving Eddie Howe short on attack options again with the new season about to get underway. It will be interesting to see if Howe now delves into the market again before the transfer window closes or perhaps more likely whether he looks at bringing in a loan striker.
The 20 year old has certainly not had much luck injury-wise. He was out of action for a lot of last season after picking up a cruciate ligament injury to his other knee just days before the 2011-12 season got underway. He had only been at the club a few days before breaking down in training.His debut had to be delayed until February this year but since that time he has established himself in the side and was going to be a crucial part of our attack this season."It`s unfortunate that Danny requires an operation and we really feel for him," said Howe talking about the injury.
"He had been looking in fantastic shape in pre-season and was a big part of our plans for the start of the season.
"But we will give him all the time and support necessary to get over this latest set-back and he will still have a major role to play for us as the season goes on."
