PANTHERS’ official No.8 Dan Gilkes is facing a lengthy period on the sidelines after crashing out at Scunthorpe last Friday.

Gilkes suffered a collapsed lung, five broken ribs and several fractures to his right arm whilst racing for his Championship club Plymouth, and the injuries could well end his season.

His Plymouth boss Garry May said: “The air fence is quite good at Scunny so we were hopeful it might not be too bad, but you could hear he was in pain as soon as we got across to him. I could tell it was bad.

“I am gutted for him. We will wait for him to get out of hospital before we find out more but if he is out for the rest of the season it will be a real shame because he has been going really well this year.”

All at Peterborough wish Dan well for his recovery, and hope to see him at the East of England Arena when he is able.
