22 February 2010 : Skivo Explains Stefan Stam Injury
Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has explained the nature of central defender Stefan Stam's injury. The 30 year old is expected to be out of action for the rest of this season due to an injury sustained during the home match against Colchester United last Tuesday, which saw him stretchered off midway through the first half.

That injury has now been diagnosed as a serious hamstring tear, and Stefan has required an operation to repair the damage today. The club were waiting to hear from physio Simon Baker and the surgeon to get a firm prognosis on the outcome, but Skivo told BBC Somerset today that he was not expecting Stefan back this season:

"He's had an operation today, and we're thinking it's the worst and that he's going to miss the rest of the season, which is a big blow. But these things happen out there. I think the injury is something to do with his hamstring and that it's actually torn off the bone, so it's a real serious injury that he's had. It's one where we'll have to wait and see what the surgeon says when he comes out of that (operation) today. My physio (Simon Baker) has gone up there today for the operation, so everyone will have their fingers crossed that it is successful so that we can get him back as soon as possible. If he makes it back for any time during the rest of this season then I think he will have done very very well."

Skiverton added that if Stefan's injury did keep him out for the remainder of the season, then the expectation was that he would still be available for the start of the 2010-11 pre-season, even as a worst case scenario.
