Brighton & Hove Albion's Andrew Crofts out for the season

9 October 2014

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Andrew Crofts is set to miss the rest of the season after suffering a second serious knee injury in the space of a year.

The Wales international has undergone surgery after tearing part of his cruciate ligament against Watford on Saturday.

The news comes as a major blow to Brighton and Crofts himself, after the 30-year-old suffered a similar injury which forced him to miss the second half of last season.

Seagulls manager Sami Hyypia told the club website: "We are all devastated for Crofty. He is an important member of our squad and worked incredibly hard to get back to full fitness after last season's knee injury.

"Crofty is a very strong character and he will continue to receive the best possible care and treatment from our medical staff throughout his rehabilitation."
