Agard Undergoes Knee Surery

Bristol City striker Kieran Agard is set to miss the start of the new football season after undergoing surgery on his knee.

The former Rotherham United striker locked his knee whilst engaging in some running last week. Following a successful operation, Agard is poised for six to eight weeks on the sidelines.

City’s head physiotherapist Steve Allen told bcfc.co.uk: “Unfortunately Kieran suffered cartilage damage in his knee whilst doing some running two days before he was due back.

“He had a bucket-handle tear of his meniscus and underwent surgery. The surgery was a success and he’s on the road to recovery now.

“He’s going to be out for six to eight weeks. It’s a matter of getting his range of motion back and his strength back before getting him into training again.”

Unlike Agard, Mark Little was back on the training pitches this morning with the rest of the squad as he continues his recovery from a shoulder operation.

However, Little is still unable to join in contact training at the moment.

Allen added: “Mark had surgery after the Oldham game (in April) and the prognosis was it would be a 16-week turnaround. He’s 11 weeks into that recovery now.

“He’s able to do all the running with the squad but he can’t do contact work right now.

“He’ll go back to see the surgeon again the day before the Yeovil game (July 30th) and hopefully then he’ll be given the all clear (for full training).”

Both players will still travel with the squad for their two-week pre-season tour of Portugal.
