Barnet, more than once, thought Graham Stack was close to making his return from injury but this hasn’t happened for the foreseeable future as he’ll not play again until the New Year!

An operation will be needed, which was confirmed by Martin Allen on the Official Website this week.

Stack visited another consultant this week when it was revealed, after further scans, his groin injury will require surgery and that will see him out for another two-three month at least.

Bees boss Allen said.

‘Graham Stack has been to see another consultant over the past week or so. He has had some further scans, to try and cure a problem that he’s had from virtually the end of last season.

‘Graham is going to undergo surgery on Monday for a groin problem. It’s likely to be a minimum of 2-3 months out of action.’

Allen added it was ‘good to finally get a diagnosis’ in one way but in another this latest setback is ‘very disappointing’ that Barnet will be missing such an important, and influential, player for another few months.

This is an issue that’s been ongoing since last season’s successful Conference Championship season, which has prevented him from appearing at all for Barnet in League 2, but hopefully he’ll be able to do this early in the New Year.

Physio Luigi Cerullo, who explained it’s a ‘rare and complex situation’ and that’s why it took so long to get to the bottom of it added.

‘Unfortunately it’s taken a long time to get this diagnosis for Graham.

It’s a rare and complex situation with him. But I’m glad to say that we’ve managed to reach a diagnosis after seeing a few specialists.

‘With the rehab programme that we have in place, we should be able to get him involved after 2-3 months.’
