The 28-year-old defender has gone under the knife and will miss the start of the season.

"Kelvin is going to be out for around three months which is a big blow to us," boss Aidy Boothroyd said on the club website.

"With Kelvin out for that length of time it's an opportunity for others.

"I've got to give that a bit of thought and my main focus is making sure that when we go into the game at York (on the opening day of the season) we have the strongest team possible.

"Roy O'Donovan is fine and Clive Platt and Chris Hackett will probably be available for selection for the second week of the season."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
