Surgery for Odemwingie

 Stoke City striker Peter Odemwingie needs knee surgery and will be sidelined for a lengthy period of time, manager Mark Hughes said yesterday.

The Nigeria international injured his knee during Stoke’s 1-0 victory over Premier League champions Manchester City at the weekend and will have surgery when the swelling has gone down.

“It’s a significant injury and unfortunately it’s a long-term one but Peter has a great attitude to work and life in general – he’s always got a smile on his face – and he’s going to need those qualities,” Hughes told Stoke’s website (www.stokecityfc.com).

“It will be a long road back but we wish him well.”
