Yeovil Town Manager Darren Sarll revealed on Friday that Glovers’ top scorer Joe Quigley is unlikely to be available for the next month.
Quigley hurt his knee in the final moments of Yeovil’s 1-0 win over Dagenham and was absent from the squad against Bromley.
Sarll told the media that his front man could miss the next five or six games.
“I don’t think Joe will be back with us before Christmas, it’s sad, disappointing for him, but his knee is not great at the moment.”
“He’s going to need a period of rehabilitation, we are still waiting on exact details, the estimates of what it is going to take him (to play again), but this is what happens when these players put their bodies on the line”
“Joe got this injury going into the corner with a couple of minutes to go at Dagenham, and what happens when the other team are desperate to get the ball back? You end up like a tree getting hacked away at”
“One little move and he’s opened his knee up, he’s in discomfort, he’s been in pain all week”
Sarll praised Quigley’s courage and ability but will now have a wait to see when his top scorer when will be available to him.
The striker has six goals to his name so far this season with five games to go until Christmas (potentially six if a replay is needed in the cup) it will fall to Adi Yussuf and a recovering Reuben Reid to lead the line.
