Ian Holloway has lost young striker Craig Sutherland, possibly for 12 months, to a freak knee injury suffered in training.

Sutherland, the former US college student looks set to be out for a year after a freak training ground injury.

He was taking part in a practice match at Pool’s Squires Gate training ground when a knee gave way during the second half.

And Holloway has revealed it’s much worse than first thought. “It’s a really bizarre one, really,” said Holloway.

“The injury has turned out to be quite nasty. He’s got three or four things wrong with his knee and it’s a terrible shame for the young man.

“He’s going to be out for a year by the looks of it.

“He was playing in a game, didn’t get much contact and it didn’t seem to hurt much, yet he’s done all sorts of damage.”
