Ahead of the game against Nottingham Forest at the weekend, the club revealed that new signing Paris Cowan-Hall has suffered a major injury blow following the game against Reading, as it had been discovered that he suffered hairline fracture of his tibia and damage to the stabilising ligament at the back of his knee.

Following an innocuous slide tackle in the scoreless draw against Reading, the player didn’t suffer any pain, but subsequent swelling showed that something wasn’t right and he was sent for a scan which has confirmed the news.

Speaking to the official site physio Bobby Bacic explained.

‘Paris has already seen one specialist and he will have a second opinion next week before a decision is made on whether surgery will be required to repair the small stabilising ligament. The alternative, pending the outcome of that decision, is to take the conservative approach and allow the ligament to heal naturally.’

Bacic says that whilst it is a blow for the player, there has to be comfort taken from the fact that these particular injuries usually occur when the more significant cruciate ligaments take damage – but that isn’t the case here.

The club will provide an update following the second specialist appointment.
