SCOTT ARFIELD could start the Championship season in the physio’s room after it was discovered he has a fractured a bone in his ankle.

The 23-year-old Scot, who joined Town from Falkirk, picked up the injury in the League One play-off semi-final with MK Dons.

Arfield even featured in the play-off final win over Sheffield United and notched a crucial penalty in the epic 22 spot kick shootout.

However the injury was only diagnosed after having a scan on Wednesday this week, a disappointment for Arfield who wrote on his Twitter account ‘Had a ct scan this morning. Fractured a bone in my ankle so need to get this sorted ASAP. Happened at the mk 1st leg. Gutted but #suchaslife.’

Arfield made 40 appearances for Town last season and although mainly deployed on the right wing, it is expected that he could feature this season in his more preffered central role.

Arfield may now have a battle on his hands to be fit for the start of the season and with competition for places hotting up with the arrival of right sided Sean Scannell and the capture of Oliver Norwood.

Get well soon Scott

  • if he can get back for pre-season training he should be okay, but if he is a week or two behind he will be playing catch up -with Scannell & Norwood he could have dropped down the pecking order a bit too – and we still have more signings to come.

  • Any player who pulls a TOWN shirt on and plays with a broken ankle should be given a knighthood,a 10 year contract exension,and get his place back as soon as HE thinks hes ready.SCOTT ARFIELD is exacly the sort of player we need at this club… Don’t talk CR## 3D …
