HUGHES GETS BOSS BACK­ING

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

NEW­PORT boss Justin Ed­in­burgh be­lieves de­fender An­drew Hughes will re­turn as good as ever de­spite suf­fer­ing a se­ri­ous knee in­jury.

Hughes, 22, will un­dergo surgery for an an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment in­jury and will miss the rest of the sea­son at least.

“This is a huge blow for An­drew as it is for the foot­ball club,” Ed­in­burgh said. “His per­for­mances this sea­son have been first class.

“Know­ing An­drew as a per­son, his tem­per­a­ment and at­ti­tude will get him back to full fit­ness sooner rather than later.

“We have no doubt that he will re­turn to full fit­ness be­ing the highly mo­ti­vated pro­fes­sional that he is.”
