Jack Smith’s time with Wimbledon, since his summer arrival, has seen him put in some impressive performances but he’s also been hampered by injury problems.

His latest injury setback looks set to sideline him for a couple of months.

Since his return from an earlier layoff the left back has been in impressive form and established himself firmly as Neal Ardley’s first choice in that position but a thigh injury sustained in the two-one defeat against Cambridge United last weekend will now keep him out for a couple of months.

Ardley told the official website: ‘The initial prognosis is that Jack has suffered a grade two tear of his thigh, which is serious. It looks like Jack could be out for a couple of months, which is a big blow because he was in good form.

‘When you look back at it he played five games in two weeks after he had been injured for a while. Maybe it is cumulative fatigue, but we thought he had come through the worst of it and he could kick-on.’

The 31-year-old will be missed during his latest injury enforced absence but as they say as on door closes another opens so the challenge has been thrown down to Callum Kennedy and Ben Harrison to take the opportunity they have a ‘show what they are capable of.’
