The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

HARTLE­POOL United goal­keeper Peter Den­ton could be out for the rest of the sea­son af­ter surgery to re­pair car­ti­lage in his knee.

Den­ton, 19, joined Pools last sum­mer af­ter be­ing re­leased by Rother­ham United and has been out on loan at Bedling­ton Ter­ri­ers.

He suf­fered the in­jury in train­ing and Pools head physio Ian Gal­lagher says there’s only a slim chance of him play­ing again this term.

“Due to Peter’s age, they’ve tried to keep as much of the car­ti­lage as pos­si­ble dur­ing the op­er­a­tion,” Gal­lagher said.

“Un­for­tu­nately, that means he could be out for longer so, in all like­li­hood, he won’t play again this sea­son.”
