Stephen Hunt is set to have surgery on his troublesome ankle injury.Colchester have been dealt an injury blow with the news that Stephen Hunt will require surgery on his ankle.
The 20-year-old defender, who joined on a free transfer from Southampton in 2004, has been limited to just two substitute appearances this season because of the ongoing problem.
"Stephen Hunt was having another scan and the outcome was that an operation was needed to remove a spur, a protruding piece of bone, from his ankle," explained physio Stuart Ayles.
"This operation will take place next week but Stephen has been working hard in the gym and to maintain his strength and fitness levels, which will aid his recovery post-op," he added.
