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

"Something in there isn't right that needs an operation" - Gary Mills
The 31-year-old Scot has been consigned to a role of spectator since his last game at Chesterfield on Boxing Day and now faces an operation which will keep him out of action for a 'few weeks'.

"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.
