Matt Carter to miss Playoffs

Forward Matt Carter has been ruled out of the playoffs by injury. Matt has been booked in to see a specialist this week but it is already known that he is probably going to need surgery on a knee injury picked up last week. A club spokeswoman said today: “We all had our fingers crossed that the injury wasn’t going to be as bad as first feared. It’s a tough time for any player to get hurt and we wish Matt a speedy recovery. “It’s no comfort to him, of course, but we are carrying ‘spare’ players so Panthers should still be at full-strength when we take on Sheffield for a place in the end of season finals weekend. “The quarter-final match up starts in Nottingham on Saturday – tickets now on sale, the game is included on the season ticket – with the second leg away a day later.”
