York defender requires surgery
Centre-back Chris Doig is the latest York City defender to be ruled out for an extended period due to requiring ankle surgery.

"He's got a problem in his ankle," York manager Gary Mills confirmed to The Press. "There is a little bit of a tear between his Achilles and his ankle bone. Something in there isn't right that needs an operation - not a serious operation but something that is going to keep him out for a few weeks."
Mills also recently lost the services of right-back Lanre Oyebanjo for around six weeks after suffering a fractured skull during the latest draw at Gillingham.
Those losses have seen a trio of new defenders, Blackburn Rovers' Jack O'Connell, Swansea City's Curtis Obeng and Jameel Ible from Salford City, arriving to boost the squad at Bootham Crescent.
