Gaskell injury blow for Bradford

Bradford stand-off Lee Gaskell has been ruled out for at least two months with a knee injury.

Gaskell, 23, suffered medial collateral ligament (MCL) damage during the early stages of Thursday’s 23-10 win over Wakefield.

The former St Helens man is now set to be on the sidelines for between eight and twelve weeks.

Coach Francis Cummins said: “We are bitterly disappointed for Lee, it is a big blow for us and that goes with saying.

“Injuries are very much part and parcel of our sport and Lee has been very unlucky, getting injured from the kick-off – in only the second game of the season.

“However, on a positive note, we have a great medical team in place here and I know he is in good hands.

“With the right type of rehabilitation, I am confident he will be back in time to complete the majority of our campaign.”

Gaskell is the third player to suffer an MCL injury in Super League already this season.
