Sean Dyche has confirmed Kevin Long will be out for the remainder of the season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament during the New Years’ Day draw at St James’ Park against Newcastle.
The Irish defender was making his first appearance of the season in the heart of the Clarets defence as Jason Shackell was forced off after 17 minutes because of a calf strain, however Long only lasted 20 minutes of his debut before being stretchered off with a nasty looking knee injury. Further tests later confirmed the full extent of the problem with an estimated rehabilitation period of around 9 months for an ACL tear which will require surgery. Long can at least take solace from the fact that team mate Sam Vokes’ [himself just back following a similar injury] is progressing well having fought his way back to full fitness. Sean Dyche will be hoping to extend Michael Keane’s loan spell from Manchester United to provide some much needed defensive cover. Wed, Jan 7, 2015 09:35:00 AM
