Zakuani out for season
Zakuani out for season

Just when Steve Lovell thought that Saturday’s 4-1 home drubbing by Barnsley couldn’t get any worse, it did!It has been confirmed that the Gills will have to do without skipper Gabriel Zakuani for the rest of the season because of an ankle ligament injury he picked up in the Second Half of Saturday’s thrashing.

The 32-year-old centre-back hobbled off during the second half after a tussle with striker Kieffer Moore and had a scan on Monday and will undergo on operation on Wednesday.

Manager Steve Lovell said: “There is no break but he has an operation on Wednesday which will see him miss the rest of the season which is a massive blow for all of us.

“He has been brilliant for us; he attacks everything and blocks everything and he will be missed. However, we need to get on with it and dig in as a group and get results.”
