Northampton Town lose Ryan Gilligan for season
Northampton Town midfielder Ryan Gilligan is set to undergo an ankle operation and will be out for the rest of the season.
The 24-year-old has just returned from a loan spell at Torquay, where he made five substitute appearances.
Boss Gary Johnson told the club website: "It's been a long-standing thing and he has decided he needs to get it done."
Gilligan has played 26 times for the Cobblers this season, scoring once.
