Alan Keane to undergo surgery

 

Alan Keane's season is over as he will undergo surgery today on his foot.

The right-back, who was hoping to return from suspension for last night's game with Derry City, will instead go under the knife to fix a toe injury. The recovery is expected to take eight to ten weeks ruling him out of our remaining seven fixtures.

Keane had played 26 times this year captaining the side on several occasions and scoring four times.

Manager John Coleman said. 'It is a blow to lose one of our most experienced players at this time. He has been fantastic for me since I came to the club."

We wish Alan a speedy recovery from his injury.

Meanwhile Gary Rogers picked up an ankle injury on Friday which ruled him out of the game against Derry while Seamus Conneely was also absent with a groin problem. Both are currently being assessed along with John Russell ahead of Monday's game with Bohemians.

Jeff Henderson will have his protective boot removed in the next couple of weeks and it is hoped he will return before the end of the season.
