Relief for Brown

11 September 2013

Knee injury nowhere near as bad as feared

Connor Brown admitted he woke from the operating table a relieved footballer after undergoing surgery.

When Latics' right back (pictured) went into hospital he was aware that his season could possibly have been over.

Brown had been told there was a possibility that he had sustained damage to the cruciate ligament in his right knee which would have ruled him out for between six and nine months.

"When I found out it was only the cartilage which had been damaged, it was the best-case scenario and a massive relief, he explained.

Brown was only too aware of the severity of a cruciate injury having sustained one to his left knee earlier in his career which left him on the sidelines for eight months.

"It would have been a big blow to be ruled out for a similar length of time but, happily, that won't be the case," he continued.

Brown ought to be back in action in between six and eight weeks.
