Peterborough United have been dealt a blow with the news that their striker Joe Gormley could face up to a year on the sidelines after suffering a serious knee injury.
The 24-year-old partially tore his anterior cruciate ligament and completely tore his lateral collateral ligament during a development fixture at Norwich City last week.
The former Cliftonville forward will now undergo an operation in the coming days and is expected to be out for nine to twelve months.
"It is obviously awful news. I think he knew instantaneously that it was a difficult situation he was in, but he has been very positive.
He is a professional, he has got good people around him and he has got good medical people around him.
It is disappointing for him, but he has to make sure he come back stronger and I am sure he will.
While he is out, he has plenty of time to improve tactically because you watch a lot of football when you are injured and you can take on board a lot of lessons about how to play the game and come back a better player."
