Macclesfield Town defender Carl Tremarco has undergone hip surgery and is set for several months on the sidelines.

Tremarco has attempted to solve the long-standing injury that has been causing him considerable pain and boss Gary Simpson is hoping he will be back in action before the end of the season.

Simpson said: "From what we gather the surgeon seemed quite pleased with how it went but in many ways that was the easy part.

"It's a similar injury to what Shaun Brisley underwent and there's no getting away from the fact its a serious one.

"If I look how Shaun has progressed, it's going to be several months before Tommy's back in consideration. And if I'm honest I am kind of assuming that he won't be available again this season. That would be a big blow.

"But he's a determined character and hopefully with the support of Reid, the backroom team and the lads he'll prove me wrong and be back wearing the shirt before the season is out."
