HAVERFORDWEST County have been dealt a blow ahead of their league game against Cardiff Met at the weekend.

Manager Wayne Jones confirmed Henry Jones will be out till January.

Jones was subbed against Flint Town in the second half of a feisty 2-0 win back on September 18.

The playmaker limped round the field to the dressing room with a pained look on his expression and it is now confirmed he will require surgery.

Manager Jones said: "He saw a specialist in the week. He is going to require surgery.

"We are looking at him going in in early November. It is a 4 to 6 week recovery. In reality we think it will be January before he returns."

League games come thick and fast for the Bluebirds now with a crunch game against Cardiff Met on Saturday in the capital (KO 2.30pm) and then a midweek tie against Penybont on Tuesday.
