Kidderminster Harriers' Kyle Storer undergoes knee surgery

Kidderminster Harriers midfielder Kyle Storer faces at least six weeks out after undergoing knee surgery.

The 25-year-old ex-Nuneaton man picked up the injury in Saturday's 2-2 home draw with Southport, having earlier scored his first goal of the season.

Storer's loss is a blow to boss Steve Burr, whose side have made a bad start to the Conference season, picking up just three points in eight games.

But Harriers are relieved as the injury bulletin might have been worse.

"Our concerns were that the injury he sustained could well have resulted in him being out for as long as three months," said Harriers sports therapist Gavin Crowe.

"But, all being well and depending on how he responds, we should be looking at getting Kyle back fit within six weeks or so.

"Initially it will be an issue of bringing down his swelling and increasing his range of movement before we start on anything else, but the news is certainly better than it might have been," he told Kidderminster's official website."
