Magnus Okuonghae made his return from suspension and injury this weekend but his season is over with the Colchester captain set to miss the remainder of the campaign with a serious injury.

Okuonghae was injured after an aerial challenge in the closing minutes of the one-nil defeat against Coventry City at the Weston Homes Community Stadium at the weekend, which was difficult to understand what had happened at first.

It soon became apparent this was a serious injury with it confirmed as a ruptured Achilles tendon and that will keep him out for five-six-months and that basically means it’s season over for him, much to Tony Humes’ frustration and obvious disappointment for all concerned.

Humes told the official website: ‘It’s a massive blow for Magnus and I really feel for him at the moment.

‘He has had a stop start season with suspensions and a hamstring injury and now has this injury to contend with.

‘Around five or six months is the projected recovery time, so it looks like it could be the rest of the season for him.’

Worst fears were confirmed on Monday with him going in for surgery on Thursday, with us all hoping he makes a swift and full recovery.
