Injured Duff faces six months out

Cheltenham Town defender Shane Duff is likely to be out of football for six months following Achilles surgery.

Duff was seen by a London consultant after reoccurring injury problems.

Duff, 27, who signed a new one-year deal this summer, has not played since limping off early on in the 5-4 home defeat by Bradford City in August.

His absence will almost certainly force manager Martin Allen to sign a centre-half, chairman Paul Baker having this week released funds for loan signings.

One-club man Duff has made 213 appearances for Cheltenham since first signing on as a professional in August 2000.
