Blades hit by massive injury blow

Published Add your comment

Sheffield United manager Gary Speed has described Chris Morgan's season-ending knee injury as "a massive blow for the player and the club".

Scan results have confirmed Blades skipper Morgan, who sustained the injury during last Saturday's home defeat to Coventry while lasting the full 90 minutes, has suffered cruciate ligament damage that will rule him out for the rest of the season.

Speed commented: "It's a massive blow for both Chris and the club and realistically we won't see him in action again until pre-season training next July. The lads we have that can play in the central defender's role will miss his experience and spirit, but I'm sure they will do all in their power to make up for his absence."
