Connor Calcutt was injured while playing on loan at Wealdstone against Chelmsford
Connor Calcutt is set to miss the remainder of the season and part of next season with a broken leg.
The striker, who signed for Stevenage in August after scoring 41 goals in 52 matches for Berkhamsted last season, was injured while playing on loan for Wealdstone against Chelmsford in mid-November.
It was initially thought that the forward would miss just three months, but it is now likely that he will be out for eight to 10 months.
Club physio Paul Dando said: “Connor is now five weeks post ankle surgery after undergoing an open internal fixation to fix a fracture to his fibula and stabilise the ankle mortise.

“He will remain in a cast for another two weeks before going into an Aircast boot. His likely lay-off is around eight to 10 months depending on the healing process.”
