Peter Clarke will pose a frustrated spectator

Peter Clarke will pose a frustrated spectator

PETER CLARKE has had to relinquish the captains armband after being sidelined with a knee injury for upto 3 months.

The 31-year-old came off worse in a 50-50 challenge with Birmingham`s Jesse Lingard during the Championship clash at the John Smith`s Stadium the Saturday before last.

The challenge saw the skipper taken straight from the pitch for treatment after just 7 minutes, and the skipper was obviously missed as Town ran out 3-1 losers on home soil to Birmingham.

This is the first serious injury that's has kept Clarke out of action for a prolonged spell of time; In a long career that began as an Everton junior and has also taken him to Blackpool at Southend before joining Town in 2009.

Clarke will cut a frustrated figure at having to watch but he remained philosophical :-

"It`s tough to take, particularly because we are going into a busy and extremely important phase of the season,

"But injuries are part and parcel of a footballer`s career, and I`ve not done too badly up to this stage."

"I am in very good hands with our physio James Haycock, and he has worked out a special programme for me to follow.

"As the weeks go on, I should be able to do more, especially after the brace comes off, but I also have to be patient and make sure the healing process is complete. And I`ll be back watching the lads, and willing them to climb that table, as soon as possible."
