Earlier this month, you may recall, we expected Luke Berry to continue his comeback from injury by making an appearance in the Checkatrade Trophy fixture against Brighton.
Sadly, it didn’t happen with the 26-year-old midfielder picking up a minor knee injury.
Today, Nathan Jones, as reported by the local news source, Luton Today, has confirmed that Berry has suffered a knee injury that has required minor surgery, with the boss reported as having remarked:
“Luke’s had a little bit of setback in training the day he would have played against Brighton, which required minor surgery actually.
“He’s going to be out for the near term really, it’s not a long-term thing, just a tiny little procedure that he needed, a little clean up thing in his knee.
“It’s nothing to do with the original injury which was good, but something that flared up from an old injury when he was really young.
“So it’s been unfortunate for him.”
After recovering from the dislocated left ankle and fractured fibula injuries, sustained in March, Luke doesn’t appear to be having much luck with injuries.
Here at Vital Luton Town, we’re hoping that this latest setback will be the last for the popular goal-scoring midfielder.
