Doncaster Rovers Belles manager John Buckley has confirmed the severity of Sue Smith's knee injury, which seems set to sideline the winger for 'a number of months'.
The England international sustained the damage after falling heavily in the first half against Barnet on her debut at the weekend, when competing for a loose ball.
Buckley explained the prognosis: "Unfortunately Sue is going to be ruled out for a number of months because she has ruptured a cruciate ligament in her knee.
"Sue is understandably really disappointed because the injury has come at a time when she was enjoying her football at a new club and looking forward to the start of the FA WSL season.
"She is scheduled to have an operation soon and we will know more once she has undergone surgery."
The Belles boss is sure the talented winger will receive the best possible treatment with England's medical team and Buckley is backing Sue to return stronger than ever.
"Sue has been very committed since signing here and we always look after our players as you would expect any club to.
"It is the worst injury for a footballer to have but we are confident she will make a full recovery and be back playing as soon as possible.
"Obviously everyone at the club's thoughts are with her now and we just hope we'll see her out on the pitch again."
