ROSS OUT TILL THE SUM­MER AF­TER OP

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Ross Law­son

ROSS McCor­mack’s sea­son has come to an end, com­pound­ing what the Not­ting­ham For­est loa­nee has la­belled a freak­ish cou­ple of weeks.

The striker has had five cysts re­moved from his jaw af­ter a three-hour op­er­a­tion. It put paid to any more time on the park.

McCor­mack had im­pressed at the City Ground, hav­ing come on loan from As­ton Villa af­ter fall­ing out of favour with Steve Bruce.

And in what has al­ready been a strange sea­son for the 30-year-old, this lat­est blow will not lift his mood af­ter sign­ing from Ful­ham in the sum­mer.

“It’s been a freak­ish cou­ple of weeks in what has been an ab­nor­mal sea­son for me,” he said.

“For­est have been good with me.

“I wanted to help them, but the doc­tors have ad­vised that I avoid con­tact in train­ing and rest up.

“I am not used to sea­sons where I don’t play a lot of games and don’t get my goals. I des­per­ately want to get back to that.

“The move to Villa did not start as planned, but hope­fully I can get my­self sorted and come back in the sum­mer nice and fresh.”
