David Davis could miss another four months with a broken ankle, according to Garry Monk.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference yesterday, the manager explained that Digga will need a second operation with a timeframe for his return still uncertain. He could miss most of the season if he requires more time to recover, but the manager is optimistic that the 27-year-old could make his comeback sooner:

“He has progressed really well, he’s got flexibility. The second operation is really standard. The specialists are really happy with him.”

“Time frame, you don’t know. Some say it could be four months, some say it could be six months, some say it’s nine months . . . but the way he is recovering and the way he is doing it, we’d like to think it’s at the lower end.”

Fans on Twitter were disappointed about the news:

Others wished the midfielder well:

Let’s hope Davis recovers sooner than expected. We really do need his energy in the middle of the park. Maikel Kieftenbeld and Gary Gardner have been doing a decent job, but the lack of cover is concerning.

By the sound of things, we may have to rely on the pair to stay fit and play the majority of games, although Craig Gardner and Charlie Lakin can be called upon if need be.
