DRFC Defender Out For The Remainder Of The Season

DRFC Defender Out For The Remainder Of The Season

Doncaster Rovers manager Darren Ferguson has ruled out another player for the remainder of the season.

Having ruled out James Coppinger and Andy Williams at the weekend for the remainder of the season, Mathieu Baudry is now set for surgery at the end of this week on an injured Achilles.

"Baudry is now going for an operation on Friday," Ferguson told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"He will now be out for the season.

"We are doing it now because we need to make sure he is fit for pre-season because he wouldn`t be if we took a gamble and left it until the end of the season.

"It is exactly the same operation he needed last summer but it is on his other Achilles.

"He will be out for seven to eight weeks."

Baudry missed the first two-months of the season after undergoing surgery on his Achilles last summer. He has become an integral part of the Doncaster defence this season alongside Andy Butler.

He had made 34 appearances and he has chipped in with five goals in the past two months.

Elsewhere, Andy Butler and Luke McCullough were both ruled out of the defeat against Blackpool on Monday but are expected to return to the squad for the trip to Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday. Butler was suffering with a hamstring injury whilst McCullough was rested after recently returning to the side having been out injured since last summer.
