Update on defender following Nottingham Forest match.
Scans have confirmed that Luke Ayling has injured the medial collateral ligament in his (right) knee and will face two months on the sidelines.
Defender Ayling has enjoyed a strong start to the season featuring 15 times in all competitions, scoring one goal.
Head of Medicine and Performance Rob Price, said: “We are all disappointed for Luke but the prognosis could have been worse, the injury to the ligament is isolated and the rest of his knee is fine which is encouraging. It is our job now as a medical department to work closely with the player and get him back involved as soon as possible, stronger than ever.”
