Scunthorpe midfielder Michael Collins will be out until next season with a torn Achilles.

The midfielder, 25, has made just two starts for the club this term due to an ankle injury which has now been diagnosed as an Achilles tear."We have been told to pencil him for next season, hopefully through the summer he works his way back to full fitness," Iron manager Alan Knill told the club's official website."I am hoping that he will be back for pre-season, but I have been hoping to have him back for a while."Of course we are disappointed, but more than that you have to feel disappointed for the player. This has been ongoing for such a long time and now to find out his season is over is a huge blow for him."
