Gainsborough Trinity skipper Michael Leary at least eight weeks away from return
Gainsborough Trinity captain Michael Leary is set to go under the knife in a bid to resurrect his season.
The midfielder has not featured in Steve Housham’s squad since the home clash with Stalybridge Celtic on August 24 due to an ankle injury.
With a date set for his operation next Thursday, Leary could be eight more weeks away from full training.
“He has had his ankle scanned and it was decided he needs an operation,” said Housham.

“That will take place next week and we have been given a timescale of eight weeks before he will be back to fitness. Of course, that can alter according to who you are dealing with so we will have to wait and see.
“It is a big blow for us because Leary is a big player for us. He is club captain and a very valued member of the midfield, which is where we are short at the moment. We are down to the bare bones.”
Housham was hoping to extend the loans of his young forwards during training at the Northolme tonight. The loans of Rhys Oates from Barnsley and Conner Robinson from Lincoln City are now at an end.
Trinity are due to face Harrogate Town at home on Saturday and could be without a number of players. Phil Barnes, Tom Ward, Taylor McKenzie, Jonathan Williams are among the walking wounded.
