Grim News for Besart!

Grim News for Besart!

Steve Cotterill announced the bad news today that the injury to our Albanian International was far worse than first thought

'It's bad news, Besart's snapped his cruciate and he had it operated on yesterday. He'll be out for the season, said Steve

'We needed to try and keep that one a little bit under wraps until he went under the surgeon's knife, we didn't want to give out any inaccurate information.

'We couldn't tell with the scans on his knee, so we had to play it down a bit, for his sake, but because he had fluid in and around, the scans were a bit muddled, and before you go in for an operation, you need the knee to settle down a little bit.

'We're very disappointed and upset for him, but it's just something now we've come to terms with, while it will be a shock to people, we've known about it for a little while.'

This is rotten luck but I guess we just have to accept these things. Injuries of this type though are always magnified in small squads reducing options for team selections. Fed up today though! Lets stuff Blackpool to make up for it!
