Unhappy start to new year for Dundee United as Scott Fraser is ruled out for rest of season

Scott Fraser.

Dundee United have received their second massive injury blow in the space of a few days, with Scott Fraser ruled out for the season.

The midfielder, who hobbled off injured during United’s 2-0 defeat to league leaders St Mirren in Paisley on Friday night, has confirmed that his worst fears have come true and he has fractured his foot again.

Fraser, who will now have another operation to repair the damage, had only just recovered from the original injury earlier this season after having a screw put into his foot.

His appeared to be back to his best and his creative, attacking play has been at the heart of the Tannadice side’s good displays under manager Csaba Laszlo.

His contribution was recognised when he was named Ladbrokes Championship player of the month for November.

Taking to social media to confirm the grim news, Fraser revealed: “Unfortunately, I’ve refractured my foot and will have another operation.

“I’m gutted (as) it looks as if my season could be over.

“I’m sure the boys will kick on and hopefully end the season successfully. Thanks for the messages.”

The news regarding Fraser came just four days after the confirmation that fellow midfielder Fraser Fyvie’s season is also over because of a cruciate ligament injury.

The Tangerines were already expected to be active in the transfer window that has just opened, with Laszlo looking for a striker, but they will now have to strengthen their depleted midfield area as well as their attack.
