Callum Cockerill-Mollett Set For a Spell on the Sidelines

Walsall left-back Callum Cockerill-Mollett, who signed his first professional contract in August 2016, is set for a spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury while on international duty.
Walsall manager Jon Whitney has revealed that young defender Callum Cockerill-Mollett is set for a spell on the sidelines after injuring his knee while on international duty with the Republic of Ireland's under-19s a couple of weeks ago

Jon, who was speaking via the Express & Star, said; "Callum has got a long-term knee injury. It's not surgical. The longest he could be out for is three months. The shortest is six weeks.

"He has got a fractured knee-cap which is a strange injury. It is something we have to treat conservatively. We'll then have to see how he reacts to that treatment. We're probably looking at three months though before he is back playing football."
