Defender set for spell on the sidelines
Northampton Town right-back Brendan Moloney is facing a spell on the sidelines after undergoing a minor knee operation on Tuesday.
“Brendan picked up an injury against Burton towards the end of last season and one thing we did say is we didn’t want any injuries lingering on into the new season but we got some bad advice if I’m honest,” said Cobblers boss Chris Wilder.
“The advice we got was for him just to rest but he’s been to see another knee specialist today and he’s been operated on.
“We expect him to be out for between four and six weeks and that is obviously a big blow for us.
“I’m a little bit disappointed in the advice that we got but we have to move on and I’m sure Brendan will rehab pretty quickly and hopefully he’ll be back by the end of August.”
