Danny Wilson has confirmed the news that two of his players have undergone knee surgery in the last week.
Speaking at his press conference ahead of Saturday's clash with Brentford, Wilson revealed both Diego De Girolamo and Lecsinel Jean-Francois have been under the knife to cure a similar problem.
The Gaffer commented: "Diego (De Girolamo) had his scan and underwent surgery straight away on a ruptured cruciate ligament.
"It will keep him sidelined for the long-term; we are certainly looking at a minimum of six months, which will mean he will miss the start of next season.
"The same goes for Lecsinel (Jean-Francois), who has had the same operation. During a scan it was discovered he had a ruptured cruciate, the same as Diego.
"It is a real blow for both lads and I can honestly say I am gutted for them. It isn't easy for anybody, but especially for a young lad who had all the excitement of the run-in in front of him. For Lecs, it just seems to be one thing after another, but as with Shaun (Miller) they will both have all our support and backing to get them back fit as soon as possible."
