Brentford's O'Connor Out Six Months

Brentford soccer (football in Europe) club captain Kevin O'Connor could be out for the season after being ruled out for six months with an ankle and leg injury.
The 30 year old Irishman has made 483 appearances for The Bees and missed a similar period of time last season with a foot injury. He was injured in last Tuesday's 1-0 win against Portsmouth and carried off the field in a stretcher.
Brentford boss Uwe Rosler admitted the win over Portsmouth came with a price: "You see me now very emotional because Kevin O'Connor doesn't look very good. He stood with foot in the ground and another player went over with the full force. It wasn't a bad tackle; it was an accident and he went over his ankle and didn't feel very good after."
Brentford's head of medical Neil Greig told the team's website: "Kevin will need to undergo surgery to repair the damage. It is anticipated to be a six-month period of rehabilitation. Having worked closely with Kevin throughout his rehabilitation from long-term injury last season, I have absolute belief that he will return from this disappointing setback to play a key role for Brentford Football Club. Kevin demonstrates a first-class attitude to recovery and we will offer him every support in order to complete his recovery."
