Defender Jack Baldwin has been ruled out for at least 10 months after a scan confirmed he has suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury.

Peterborough United central defender Jack Baldwin faces at least 10 months on the sidelines after scans confirmed that he suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury in the 2-1 defeat to Scunthorpe United at London Road last Saturday.

Physiotherapist Chris Burton explained: "Jack has torn his anterior cruciate ligament on his right knee. He will have a period of rehab now to settle the knee down and make sure he has a good range of movement. He'll then have surgery and will be sidelined for 10-12 months until his returns to full fitness."

Manager Darren Ferguson said: "It is a huge blow both for Jack and of course the football club and we will support him on his long road to recovery."
