Darlington FC have revealed the full extent of the injuries sustained by their on-loan Chesterfield player Sam Muggleton.
In a statement released this morning the National League North outfit confirmed that, along with a fractured femur, there was severe damage to the 23-year-old's left knee.
"As well as a fractured femur, he has suffered three ruptured ligaments; his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), his posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and lateral colateral ligament (LCL)," the statement said.
"He has also suffered a tear on his knee tendon.
"Obviously, he is going to need an operation and further medical treatment, and so we would like to wish him well, and a speedy recovery."
Muggleton was playing his second game as a Quaker when he collided with Southport's Marcus Wood.
