Chris King in action against Bangor City
STRETCHERED off mid-way through the first-half of last night's 3-0 win over Newtown, Chris King became the second TNS player this season to fracture a cheekbone.
He joins the growing injured list that is placing severe pressure on Ken McKenna's small squad - the manager was forced to name four youth players on the bench against the Robins.
King, who has been in superb form, had an operation on a double fracture this afternoon and now faces at least an eight-week layoff, as did John Leah when he suffered an identical injury earlier in the season.
Happily, McKenna has a replacement in Barry Hogan, who slotted readily into the left wing back spot when King was missing with a hamstring problem at the start of the campaign.
Leah himself missed the game against his former club Newtown with a dead leg, but may be fit to face NEWI Cefn Druids on Friday night.
Also missing on Tuesday were Jimmy Aggrey (flu), John Toner (knee) plus longer term absentees Jamie Wood and Nicky Ward.
