Burrow, 20, sustained the problem when making a block tackle in the 4-1 victory over Barnet last weekend.

A scan revealed the damage to be more severe than first feared, with the player now set for a spell of 10 to 12 months on the sidelines.

Boss Jim Bentley told Morecambe's official website: "It's a huge blow for Jordan and for us.

"We didn't realise how bad it was at first but then we got the results of the scan and it was worse than expected.

"It is another blow for us as he is the second striker now ruled out for a time with the same injury and it leaves us a bit short of options but we will continue to work hard and assess all our options."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
