Plymouth Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick facing "lengthy lay-off"

Plymouth Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick is facing a "lengthy lay-off" due to a fractured and dislocated finger, according to club physiotherapist Paul Atkinson.

Plymouth Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick is facing a "lengthy lay-off" due to an injured finger.

The 30-year-old picked up the problem in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Mansfield Town.

Plymouth physiotherapist Paul Atkinson told the club's official website: "He has fractured and dislocated his finger and early indications are that it is going to be a lengthy lay-off.

"It's obviously worse for him because he is a goalkeeper. If he was an outfield player, we might be able to strap up the injury and he would be able to carry on playing.

"The consultant has asked a colleague, who is the specialist on hand injuries in the South West, for his opinion. Luke will be seeing him on Wednesday. After that, we will be in a better position to give a more precise time-frame for treatment and recovery."

McCormick's injury means that Jake Cole, who has kept two clean sheets in 10 first-team appearances this season, will be between the sticks when the Pilgrims travel to Northampton Town this weekend.
