Bradford City bombshell as Luke Oliver ruled out for rest of the season
Luke Oliver’s season is over after he underwent an operation this morning.
City’s reigning player of the year ruptured his left Achilles tendon in Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Burton. The club’s initial worries over the extent of the damage were confirmed and he went under the knife today.
Phil Parkinson predicted Oliver will be out of action for “six to nine months”, which rules him out of kicking another ball in the current campaign.
Parkinson, who is scouring for a replacement centre half on a long-term loan, expects to know more about Andrew Davies after further tests. He misses the Capital One Cup tie at Wigan with a twisted knee and will undergo a scan later today.
