"Losing Elliott is a big blow for us. It's really bad news for the player first and foremost because I felt he did well against Everton.

"He played the game on Saturday but didn't have a great reaction and we have since found that there was a knee problem that was operated on.

"It will keep him out for a number of months."

Bennett has been using social network and despite the injury setback, he is determined to return an improved player.
