Midfielder Out Until Next Season...

Dundee United midfielder Craig Conway is out until next season, after breaking another bone in his foot during a training session this week.

The 23-year-old missed out on 4 months of action near the start of the season, after limping out of the 0-0 draw with Hibernian at Tannadice after just 30minutes played.

The former Ayr United player was diagnosed with a broken metatarsal and was expected to be out for a couple of months, but he struggled to recover from the injury and required several operations to fix the bone in place.

The Irvine born midfielder returned to action for United on the 22nd of December in a 2-1 defeat to Gretna at Tannadice, but hasn`t been able to hold down a 1st team place, making most of his 19 appearances this season from the subs-bench.

Then last Friday, on his 23rd birthday, tragedy struck again... Conway repeated the same injury during another training ground incident and had to have further surgery to pin the bone in place.

"It's incredible that this should have happened again," a shocked Craig Levein told the Dundee Courier.

"There was no-one near him when it occurred - the boy has had no luck at all."

"Now it's a matter of getting fit for pre-season - he should be back running not long after that starts so hopefully he won`t be too far behind everyone else."

There might be only 2 SPL matches remaining of this season, but Dundee United are still desperate to secure 3rd top spot and a place in the UEFA Cup.

Conway could have played an important part in the games against Rangers(a) and Celtic(h), as Craig Levein`s side attempt to end the season on a high.
