Rafferty set for a spell on the sidelines

Published: 02/10/2022

Pompey right-back Joe Rafferty is set to be out for 3-4 weeks according to manager Danny Cowley. 

Speaking to The News earlier today, Cowley said “As for Joe, he had the operation on Wednesday and we are hopeful it will be 3-4 weeks before we see him back. 

“You always miss key players and he had a really good start to the season, but I think Connor has done brilliantly since coming in for him” 

Thus far, Ogilvie has started at right-back over Zak Swanson despite it being Swanson’s natural position. One can only assume that Swanson will be given the nod for Tuesday’s EFL Trophy clash with Aston Villa U21s to assess his progress.
