Yeovil dealt huge injury blow ahead of autumn fixtures

Yeovil Town will be without captain Omar Sowunmi after the giant defender was ruled out with a serious ankle injury.

The Glovers are 15th in the table, but had a solid start to the season which has begun to disappear into the distance. Sowunmi is one of the key performers, but he looks set to be out until mid-December at the earliest and is unlikely to be fully match fit until 2019.

He has been ruled out for 10-12 weeks with an ankle ligament injury he picked up against MK Dons at the end of last month.

The 22-year old has been a bed rock of the Glovers defence and will be a huge loss for them.

He started out as a trainee at Ipswich and enjoyed loan spells with Braintree and Lowestoft before joining Yeovil. He’s since racked up 60 league appearances for the Huish Park outfit and forged a reputation as a defender with an exciting future.

This is really bad news for Yeovil, he’s been a key part of their side this season and his absence will hit them hard.

Their early-season promise has begun to fade and it may be that they need to look at free agents in order to cover the gap left at the back.
