WARRINGTON Town have confirmed Scott Brown will undergo surgery today after suffering a serious injury during a match last night.

Yellows' game against Buxton was abandoned after the midfielder was injured during the first half of the Pitching In Northern Premier League contest.

Brown was taken by ambulance from the ground to hospital and it has now been confirmed that he has suffered a badly broken leg.

At the very least, he is likely to miss the remainder of the 2020-21 season.

"I spoke with Browny this morning," manager Paul Carden said.

"He’s had a tibia and fibula break and he’s having an operation today, which is good.

"It’s a clean break which is slightly better if there’s no complications but obviously, he’s going to be out for a long while.

"He’s a good lad and has a good way about him in that he’s very spirited."

The 35-year-old lay on the turf, surrounded by teammates and covered in coats and layers to keep him warm, for over an hour before paramedics arrived to transfer him to hospital.

Buxton were leading the game 1-0, with James Hurst having put them ahead shortly before the match was stopped.

Brown is on a season-long loan at Cantilever Park from League Two side Harrogate Town.
