Coleman puts Bell surgery on hold
Published : 08 Apr 2009 12:21:00
The 25-year-old former Norwich midfielder was set to miss the rest of the season in order to have the surgery, but he may now be forced to play through the pain barrier following injuries to Stephen Wright and Jordan Henderson. Full-back Wright is out for the rest of the season and midfielder Henderson has returned to parent club Sunderland with a suspected metatarsal injury, leaving Coleman's already small squad down to the bare bones. "We won't see Jordan again as he's gone back and Wrighty is done for the season," said Coleman. "It means we may need to get a couple more games out of Belly. "We have been hit again by injuries, not to squad players but to first-team players, so we may have to delay David's operation and get two more games out of him."
