Akpan faces three months out

19 November 2014

Injury blow for midfielder

Hope Akpan faces three months out injured after dislocating his shoulder whilst on international duty with Nigeria.

Akpan came off early in the second half of Saturday's game against Congo, and has now seen a consultant back in Berkshire and will undergo surgery next week.

The news is a real blow for the 23-year-old, who recently made his 50th appearance for the club and has started ten of our 17 League games this season.

When he picked up the injury he was playing only his second game for his country, having proudly broken into the squad this season.

Unfortunately it now looks like he will miss the African Cup of Nations which is due to take place in January in Equatorial Guinea.

Everyone at the club would like to send Hope their best wishes for the quickest possible recovery.
