Thompson to undergo ankle operation
Colchester United defender Josh Thompson is set to be sidelined for three months after being told he needs an ankle operation.
The former Celtic and Portsmouth centre-back suffered the injury in training last month and has been troubled with it for a number of weeks.
And despite undergoing rehabilitation, he will now go under the knife in a bid to cure him of the problem that has disrupted his season.
U’s boss Joe Dunne said: “It’s hugely disappointing for Josh.
“He saw the specialist and he’s been making progress with his rehab.
“But you get to a certain point with your rehab when you think it’s still a bit sore.”
