Gillingham defender Simon King could miss whole season

Gillingham defender Simon King may miss the whole of the season through injury, manager Mark Stimson has revealed.

King had surgery on his ankle after damaging it during a pre-season friendly against Bromley in July.

Gills boss Mark Stimson told BBC Radio Kent: "He's still way off fitness, he's been to see his specialist this week but it's going to be a long process.

"He certainly won't be fit by January. We hope he'll be back this season, but there's always a chance he won't."

King's injury was initially thought to be minor, but the 26-year-old was forced to undergo surgery on his ankle in September.
