Brendan Moloney: Northampton Town defender has surgery
Northampton Town right-back Brendan Moloney will be out for between four and six weeks after knee surgery.
The 26-year-old, who joined the Cobblers on a permanent deal in February following a loan spell, was injured against Burton on 25 April.
"We didn't want any injuries lingering on into the new season but we got some bad advice," said boss Chris Wilder.
"The advice we got was for him just to rest but he's been to see another knee specialist and he's been operated on."
