More Injury Woe For Oakley

Last updated : 23 November 2004 By Mad Reporter
The Saints midfielder, who had just gotten a couple of reserve team games under his belt after being sidelined since last September with cruciate knee ligament trouble, has had to have surgery to shave a piece of bone that was sticking into the patella tendon.

"It has set him back a bit," Saints coach Jim Joyce has said.

"It will be three or four weeks at least before he is back to where he was last week."
