Flinders undergoes surgery

6 January 2020

Goalkeeper Scott Flinders has undergone surgery after it was confirmed that he had fractured his tibia and fibula during Saturday's 3-0 home win over Oldham Athletic.

The incident which led to his injury occured in the second half of the match when the score was at 1-0.

He was stretchered off and was taken to Gloucester Royal Hospital where he was successfully operated on. He is expected to come out of hospital this afternoon.

Though expected to make a full recovery, he will miss the remainder of the season.

Head of Medical Gavin Crowe said: "Scott had surgery on Sunday. The outcome now is down to time and also his rehab. We must thank the NHS for the great service they provided."

Signed in August 2017, Flinders is one of the longest serving members of the Robins squad. He has made 127 appearances in his time with the club.
