Adkins on midfield blow
Jem was stretchered off in our 1-0 home win against Leeds, having shown typical desire to get back and make a challenge as Leeds broke forward.
It is a bitter pill for our 24-year-old Academy product, who the boss says has all the attributes to be 'the modern day midfielder.'
Adkins said, "It was a massive blow losing Jem so early in the game, he's been outstanding for us this season. His passing has been top drawer, so too his energy and drive. It's a big blow because it looks like he'll be out for a long time. We'll look after him, he's one of our own and has come through the system, he's important to us.
"It's a big blow for him because he has a bright future. He's been developing into the whole package of the modern day midfielder. Now he'll do the rehab and come back stronger."
Jem did of course also suffer an ankle injury the last time we played Leeds United, and came back to full fitness in exceptional time.
