Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "He has been pretty unlucky really. He slipped at home and he's cut his hand pretty badly. As a result, he suffered a deep cut and has severed two flexor tendons in his right hand. It is a freak accident and you have no control over these things. It is a blow to lose him because he has been playing really well, but it is one of the few areas where we actually have a bit of cover".
