Skipper Tony Craig has now undergone an operation on the knee injury he sustained during the scoreless draw with Bradford City earlier this month.

Suffering the damage whilst making a block on the edge of the penalty area, he’s now set for several weeks in a brace before he can fully begin his rehab work and begin his long road back to recovery from the ligament and muscle damage he sustained.

Physio Bobby Bacic explained to the official site.

‘Tony underwent surgery on his left knee last week. The surgeon undertook a detailed procedure which involved repairing both ligaments and muscles. Tony will remain on crutches and in a brace for six weeks to begin with and his is classed as a long-term injury. If Tony returns before the end of the season we will regard this as a bonus.’

In previous interviews Bacic has said the surgeon would be the same person who worked on Carlos Edwards’ problem and it sounds like surgery itself went as well as could be hoped for given the damage the skipper sustained.

The first of many hurdles now passed though and hopefully from this point forward, every step is a positive one and one closer to recovery.
