STEVEN Schu­macher will face a lengthy spell out af­ter tear­ing his an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment in Steve­nage’s win at Bris­tol Rovers.

The 31-year-old scored his third goal in his last five matches in the game at the Me­mo­rial Sta­dium, be­fore pick­ing up the in­jury that will see him out for six to nine months.

“It’s a big blow,” said boss Teddy Sher­ing­ham

“In the last six weeks he’s shown how good a player he is, he’s really been com­ing into his own. It’ll be a big miss.”
