County midfielder Matty Mainwaring has been dealt another blow as he attempts to regain his starting place in The Hatters team.

Mainwaring began a lengthy chain of leg problems back in the summer of 2009 when current County footballer-impersonator Barry Conlon broke his leg with a nasty challenge in a pre-season friendly at Edgeley Park against Conlon’s Grimsby side.

Since then, the ex-Preston man has struggled to ever regain full fitness – he recovered from the broken leg in the New Year of 2010, but was quickly ruled out until summer when he fell awkwardly in training and broke his wrist.

The unlucky popular youngster finally made his return to the County side when Paul Simpson started Mainwaring in midfield as County conquered Macclesfield Town 2-0 at Moss Rose in September, and County went on to win 7 points of a possible 9 while he was in the side.

Matty then mysteriously vanished from the match-day squads, until County announced today the latest injury woe for the 20-year-old.

He will be out until New Year 2011, and County released a statement on the official site today.

Matty Mainwaring is due to go into hospital in November in an effort to cure the problems that have hampered his progress this season.

Matt told County World this week that he has been suffering from discomfort recently from the leg which was broken against Grimsby Town, and the metal pins which were put in place during the operations he had at the time, are to be removed to aid his recovery.

The operation, due towards the end of November will keep the midfielder out of first team contention until the New Year.

Good luck to Matt on his latest recovery.
