Carl Magnay: Hartlepool United defender suffers serious knee injury
Hartlepool United defender Carl Magnay will be out for up to six months because of a anterior cruciate ligament injury.
The 27-year-old suffered the injury in the 0-0 draw with Mansfield.
The former Chelsea trainee, who moved to Pools from Grimsby at the start of last season, had missed just one league game so far this campaign.
"It's a massive setback for us because he's a big part of the squad," boss Craig Hignett told the club website.
