Stoke City fans have been reacting to the news striker Tyrese Campbell is set to miss the rest of the season.
Campbell suffered a serious knee injury during the home defeat to Cardiff on December 8 and missed Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Derby.
The 20-year-old striker’s injury was assessed by two specialists who gave City manager Michael O’Neill the news he had been dreading.
O’Neill told the club’s website: “It’s a cruel blow for us but even more so for Tyrese, a young man with a great future who had been performing so well for us this season.”
Campbell had scored seven goals in all competitions for the Potters this season.
Here’s a look at what fans have been saying on Twitter.
Glyn Andrews: That’s promotion gone then. Can’t even spend in January due to FFP.
Stoke Mark: Heartbreaking news about Tyrese Campbell. Playing out of his skin, creating goals, scoring goals and then this. Typical Stoke luck
Will Stokie: Poor Tyrese Campbell: been having a great season, established himself in the first team, loving his football and now this. Proper unfair.
Liam Devaney: What a kick in the teeth, all the best with your recovery Tye. You’ll be missed for sure.
@rivers1968: Gutted for @TyreseKCampbell our most attack player by far always looks dangerous. We need a replacement urgently
