Mee Ouch: Out for 4-6 weeks!

Mee Ouch: Out for 4-6 weeks!

Left back Ben Mee has suffered medial knee ligament damage and now faces an extended spell on the sidelines.

Mee picked up the injury during Sunday's 1-1 derby draw with Blackburn at Turf Moor. Although he completed the match, he announced on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon this week that he now expects to be out for 4-6 weeks.

He tweeted on his personal page:

'Managed to tear my medial ligament in my knee midway through the game on Sunday, looking like a 4 to 6 week job #gutted'.

A club statement from the club later confirmed the grim news, stating that he would be absent for 'several weeks'.

Sean Dyche said:

'It's a blow for Ben and we will have to give the knee a chance to settle down and then fully assess the injury.

'We are hoping it will be sooner, rather than later, but we are expecting it will be weeks, rather than days'

At least Burnley have plenty of cover at left back and Danny Lafferty and Joseph Mills will now both be in competition to replace Mee in that position.

I have been impressed with Mee at left back this season - Although he wasnt at his best on Sunday. Be interesting to see if Mills now gets back into the squad.

It explains his second half performance, It will give someone ele a chance but who?

Its disappointing as I think Mee is one of our most talented players, and has certainly had a positive influence in recent weeks. I hope he's back soon, but it will be interesting to see what sort of fight for the left back spot Mills and Lafferty put in.
