MANSFIELD TOWN ace Daniel Bacon will miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury.

The 21-year-old striker has been struggling with the ankle problem for some time and he is set to undergo surgery to cure the injury.

The injury is a blow to Stags boss Stuart Watkiss, but he is confident that the player will make a full recovery for next season.

"We took him to a specialist as a precaution and he thinks that he needs an operation," Watkiss told the club's official website.

"It's important that he remains positive as he has had his fair share of bad luck but he will now be looking to prove himself next season."
