Blyth Spartans have confirmed Scott Fenwick suffered significant ligament damage during the 4-0 win over Heaton Stannington last night.
The striker was stretchered off three minutes into his injury comeback after coming on as a half-time substitute – his first appearance since October 10.
Fenwick was swiftly taken to hospital after appearing in agony inside the Heaton Stan penalty. It is understood he got his foot locked in the turf.
An x-ray revealed there is no fracture, however there is damage to the anterior talofibular ligament and a huge amount of swelling.
An initial assessment suggests Fenwick will be ruled out for two months but will be re-assessed once the swelling eases in around one week’s time.
