Morgan Set to Miss Season
Sheffield United were dealt a crippling blow yesterday when it was announced Chris Morgan could miss the remainder of the season.
Morgan had a scan on a knee injury picked up at the weekend, and fears were confirmed when it was revealed a cruciate ligament problem, an injury that will not only see him miss the rest of the season, but one which could threaten his career, as he enters the latter stages.
At a time when the Blades are looking for leadership and character on the field, losing Morgan becomes a double blow, and it will require another senior member to step up to the plate.
Boss Speed said of the injury:
i>'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.'
With numbers in defence already thin on the ground, Speed will be looking to bolster his ranks with a signing to cover the skipper's absence.
