Dagenham influential midfielder ruled out for three months

Published Add your comment

Dagenham have been hit hard by the news that influential midfielder Stuart Thurgood will be out for at least three months.

Thurgood saw a specialist on Friday and it has now been revealed he will have to go under the knife to repair his knee injury.

Thurgood's absence is a big blow to manager John Still as the former Gillingham midfielder played a crucial part in the Daggers' storming start to the season.

Thurgood has two cartilage problems - one on the inside and the other on the back - which have to be operated on and will be sidelined for three months if everything goes smoothly.

Dagenham extended the loan of Gillingham midfielder Adam Miller - who has been deputising for Thurgood - for an extra month on Tuesday and may look to bring someone in on a permanent basis in January.
