Brentford’s Josh Dasilva has suffered a significant knee injury.

The midfielder will undergo surgery after a short period of preparation.

“Unfortunately, Josh suffered an injury in training over the weekend, while preparing for the Man City game,” said head of medical Neil Greig.

“Subsequent imaging has shown a significant injury to ligaments in his right knee, which will require surgery to repair.

“Having consulted with the leading knee surgeon in the UK, Josh will now undertake a short period of preparation before surgery goes ahead and, at this point, no firm timescales have been discussed for his recovery.

“Josh will, of course, receive all of the support that he needs over the coming weeks.

“He’s previously shown an outstanding attitude to adversity and injury recovery, and we have absolute confidence in his capability to fully recovery from this setback.”
