Port Vale winger Enoch Andoh is likely to miss the rest of the season with a serious knee injury.
Andoh, 22, was hurt in Vale’s 2-1 defeat by Colchester and a scan has revealed damage to his anterior cruciate ligament.
“It’s not great news. He’s got quite a significant injury to his knee,” manager Rob Page told BBC Radio Stoke.
“It’s one that’s going to put him out for a considerable amount of time – probably the rest of the season.”
The news is a major blow for the Valiants who are also missing loan signing Ryan Inniss for several months.
