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."
Former Peterborough United manager Dave Robertson is back in work - just a few weeks after he was sacked as Posh boss.
The 41-year-old has been appointed as the new under 21s manager at fellow League One club Southend United.
Robertson was dismissed from his role at the ABAX Stadium after Posh made a poor start to the season, with ex Stevenage manager Graham Westley replacing him.
Robertson takes over from Dale Brooks at Roots Hall.

Peterborough's new manager Graham Westley has told the club's fans to judge him on how his team plays following some negative reaction to his appointment.
The 47-year-old's spell at Preston was overshadowed by reports of player unrest and criticism of both his management and playing style before he was sacked just over a year in charge and Posh fans have raised concerns on social media.
"Your actions are always the most important thing in football. It doesn't matter what you say, what matters is what you do," Westley said when unveiled by the club at a press conference.
Westley, who guided Stevenage to the Football League for the first time in their history in 2010 and secured back-to-back promotions for the club the following season, will take charge of his first game for Posh at Bradford on Saturday.
The former Stevenage manager has been confirmed as the new boss at League One club Peterborough United.
Peterborough have been without a manager since Dave Robertson left the club in September.
Westley left Stevenage in May after the club lost in the League Tow play-off semi-final.
Peterborough are currently 18th in the league after drawing 1-1 at Walsall on Saturday.

"Today we welcome Graham Westley as the new manager of Peterborough United Football Club after what has been an extensive interview process with some excellent candidates.
"Graham has a burning desire to win, succeed and add to his previous success which includes multiple promotions, league titles and multiple cup wins at Wembley not to mention a near 50% win record."
Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has revealed on Periscope that he's narrowed down the shortlist for the vacant manager's job to two candidates.
MacAnthony also told fans during the live broadcast that a manager currently managing in The Championship has applied for the position.
MacAnthony says that he's in no rush to appoint a successor for Dave Robertson and confirmed that current caretaker boss Grant McCann will still be in charge for Saturday's game against Walsall.

Peterborough United midfielder Jack Payne has joined League Two side Leyton Orient on a season-long loan, with a view to a permanent move.
Former Posh captain Payne has fallen out of favour at the ABAX over the summer.
The 23-year-old could make his Orient debut in tonight's Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash against Luton Town.
Peterborough United have extended the loan of Chelsea defender Alex Davey until January.
The 20-year-old has impressed during an initial one-month deal and will now stay at the ABAX until the new year.
Davey has played in all of Posh's games so far this season.
Peterborough United midfielder Joe Newell has joined Championship side Rotherham United for an undisclosed fee.
Posh gave special permission for the 22-year-old to feature in a pre-season game for the Millers, and they have now taken up the option to sign him.
Newell came through the academy at Peterborough and made over 100 appearances for the first team.
'It is a great opportunity for Joe and I am sure he will do very well in the Championship with Rotherham.'
