SHREWS­BURY’S Aus­tralian midfielder James Wesolowski faces a long pe­riod on the side­lines af­ter dam­ag­ing his an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment dur­ing last Satur­day’s vic­tory over Barns­ley.

The 28-year-old has been blighted by in­juries this year hav­ing al­ready suf­fered knee trou­ble in Jan­uary.

Shrews­bury physio Chris Skitt ex­pects Wesolowski to make a full re­cov­ery.

“We’ve been to see the sur­geon to­day and he said he’s been hor­ren­dously un­lucky – it’s ef­fec­tively snapped the lig­a­ment,” said Skitt.“I’ve gone through the facts and fig­ures and they say once you’ve had your ACL re­paired, there’s no more risk of it go­ing again.”
