Clarke out

for the campaign

Clarke operation means the hitman will be out for the rest of the 2012/13 campaign...
Coventry City striker Leon Clarke will undergo an operation on Monday to fix a re-occuring ankle problem.

The 28-year-old has been playing through the pain barrier in recent weeks but the 21-goal hitman and club medical staff have taken the decision to resolve the injury to prevent any long-term problems.

The op means Clarke will miss the rest of the Sky Blues' 2012/13 campaign but City boss Steven Pressley says the decision was made in the best interests of the striker's long-term fitness.

"Leon's ankle problem has been something that he has carried and the way he has performed despite this is a testament to him," Pressley said.

"We obviously need to bear in mind Leon's long term fitness and felt this decision was the right one.

"Hopefully this means he can overcome something that has been troubling him for a while and we can get him back in full health sooner rather than later."
