Knee blow for Sancho

Gillingham defender Brent Sancho is facing an eight-week lay-off after picking up a knee injury. The Trinidad & Tobago international sprained his knee during the first half of the Gills' 2-1 win at Doncaster last weekend. Sancho has since told the Trinidad & Tobago Football Federation: "It's disappointing to say the least because it also puts me out of the two international friendlies back home next month. "We were doing quite well in the first half and I felt I had been doing pretty good in the previous matches so this is a blow. "When it happened I didn't feel it much because I was able to walk it out but then at half-time I got the feeling that it had a strain. "Hopefully, the club will continue to get decent results and I will be back before Christmas to help them during that period."
