Maidstone United captain Blair Turgott has been ruled out for four to six weeks with knee cartilage damage.
The 24-year-old has been Maidstone’s standout attacking performer so far this season, bagging 15 goals. Turgott was injured in the first half of Tuesday’s game with Eastleigh.
He had a scan earlier this week and has now been confirmed to be out for at least a month. Manager Harry Wheeler has registered youngsters Dylan Florence and James Taylor, with both available for tomorrow’s FA Cup second round game against Oldham Athletic.
