WARRINGTON Town winger Jack Dunn is unlikely to play again this year due to a serious knee injury.

Dunn picked up the injury in last month’s FA Cup win at FC United of Manchester and scans have revealed a Grade Two medial ligament tear.

More frustratingly, the 24-year-old was hurt just 15 minutes after coming off the bench for his first appearance of the season having recovered from a calf injury.

Last season was also injury-plagued for the former England under 19 international as a series of troubles forced him out of key games, including the ‘super play-off’ defeat to King’s Lynn Town.

“He’s had a scan and we think he’ll miss three months,” manager Paul Carden said.

“He’s got a high Grade Two tear in his medial ligament, so it will be Christmas time we hope he will be back.

“It just seems to be one thing after another with Dunny. It’s another impact injury which we keep getting.

“It’s one of those periods we just have to get through.”

Josh Amis (foot) and Louis Barnes (hamstring) are also currently on the sidelines for Town, with neither set to play any part in this week’s fixtures.

Carden’s men travel to Whitby Town on Saturday, kick off 3pm, before a trip to Matlock Town on Tuesday, kick off 7.45pm.

“Josh Amis’ foot isn’t getting any better,” the Yellows boss said.

“He had another x-ray on Tuesday so hopefully we’ll get some positive news on that.

“Louis Barnes seems to be progressing slowly, but no signs of him coming back soon.”

Midfielder Steve Jennings – himself only recently back from injury – will now sit out three games after his red card for violent conduct in Tuesday’s 2-2 draw with Lancaster City.

The 35-year-old is available to face Whitby but the Matlock game will be the first of his suspension, which will also take in the home game against Stalybridge on October 19 and Town’s first FA Trophy game on October 26.
