Peterborough United striker Aaron Mclean is likely to miss the remainder of the Championship season as he requires knee surgery.
The 26-year-old striker, who has scored seven league goals in 35 appearances this season, twisted his knee in training last Friday.
Scans on the injury show a tear and now Mclean will require between four to six weeks on the sidelines recovering from the ligament damage.
Mclean is frustrated that he could miss the remainder of the season after working hard to win back a place in Jim Gannon's starting XI.
"We were just doing shooting practice in training and I twisted and landed awkwardly and now I've damaged the ligaments," he told the club's official website.
"The scan has shown a tear so I will have to have it operated on this week and I am looking at four to six weeks out.
"It has been a stop-start season for me but I had just got back in the team and this is very disappointing and it looks like my season is going to end on a sour note.
"I'd love to get back before the end of the season and play my part."
