O'Dea Out for Six Weeks
O'Dea Out for Six Weeks
Thursday, 14th Oct 2010 14:57

On-loan Town defender Darren O’Dea is out for six weeks having undergone a knee operation last week. Celtic's O’Dea suffered the problem while away with the Republic of Ireland last month and had been struggling with the injury since then.

Boss Roy Keane said:”Darren O’Dea had an operation last week and will probably be out for about six weeks.

“That goes to show that you need people like Damien Delaney and Tommy Smith ready to play, just like Tommy was called up half an hour before the game against Leeds.

“That’s the only blow to us over the last week or so. Darren’s done really well for us and he’s a really good lad.”

Keane says there were no new injuries amongst the senior players who have been away on international duty, while Connor Wickham is back from England U19 duty this afternoon.

Keane also said we are signing a midfielder cum defender tomorrow from a premiership club. Jay Spearing is my guess.

Bugger! Bugger! he was carrying a niggle before he joined their camp... should never have been taken on tour. Hey ho, we have a decent squad with options to cover...

The guy has done well so this is a blow. However Kennedy is a good player and Smith / Delaney are more than ample replacements.

Shame, he will be a loss.

A great shame but better to get the injury sorted sooner rather than later. Got very good options to cover anyway. COYB!
