JONATHAN HOGG’S season is over after scans confirmed the Huddersfield Town midfielder suffered a fractured beck in last night’s defeat to Bristol City.

The 28-year-old was stretchered from the field after lengthy treatment on the Ashton Gate pitch following an accidental clash with team-mate Mark Hudson.

Hogg underwent scans on the injury that, Town confirmed today, resulted in a fracture within his cervical spine (neck).

A Town statement, released this afternoon, reads: “He remained in hospital throughout this morning for ongoing observations and underwent further investigations concerning the associated soft tissues within his injured area. The results of this scan have confirmed no significant trauma to any of the soft tissues.

“He was discharged from hospital on Saturday afternoon and will now continue with his aftercare in Yorkshire concerning his fracture management.

“Throughout both days, Jonathan has been conscious and completely aware of his situation.

“Although he is expected to miss the rest of the 2017/18 season, the club is happy that Jonathan is in no immediate danger and looks forward to seeing ‘Hoggy’ back out on the pitch as soon as is safely possible.”

Hogg has been a key player for Town, his partnership with Aaron Mooy a major part in the club’s unexpected promotion push.
