GAVIN Williams last night spoke of his heartbreak at being ruled out for the rest of the season.

The Blues midfielder has been told he needs surgery to correct a tear in a knee cartilage after undergoing an exploratory operation on Wednesday.

Williams will go under the knife within the next week but the recovery time required for full healing will mean the Wales international missing the rest of the season.

Speaking from his South Wales home Williams told the EADT: “I'm absolutely gutted by this. The team has been doing so well and I have been really enjoying my football.

“The lads have a big game against Leicester tomorrow which they can win and then two massive matches against Preston and Crystal Palace which could catapult us towards the play-off places, and I would have loved to have been involved.

“As it is I know I'm out now for the rest of the season and all I can do is look towards being fit in time for pre-season training and look forward to next season.”

A £300,000 buy from West Ham, Williams scored on his debut at Coventry City and has gone on to make unlucky 13 appearances for Town.

He limped out of the 2-0 win at Southampton after just 23 minutes with a knee problem and although he tried a comeback at Norwich, he was forced off before half-time after being on the receiving end of some rough treatment.

There was better news for Town's other casualties with Danny Haynes back in training, after picking up an ankle injury before scoring the winner at Norwich City.

Striker Alan Lee, who was struggling with a tight hamstring before the Crewe game then felt it go after scoring, is making good progress and hopes to be back next week.

Fabian Wilnis and Scott Barron are both fit and could slot into defence along with Sito Castro and Jason De Vos.
