Moss to go under knife

The 29-year-old will go under the knife as soon as possible to correct the damage sustained while taking a goalkick during Gold Coast United’s win over Adelaide United in the A-League on Friday.
Moss is expected to be out of action for eight weeks and is set to be replaced in the Gold Coast goal by understudy Jerrad Tyson.
“It was just a normal goal kick, a kick that I’ve done hundreds of times in my career,” Moss says.
“It wasn’t as if I was sprinting flat out and changed direction or collided with someone or fell on it – that’s the frustrating bit about it.
“As I did it, I heard a pop or a snapping type of sound and my leg went numb. I looked up and the ball was just trickling along the ground and I couldn’t feel my leg.”
Moss says the prospect of being sidelined just when United seem to have turned their season around is disappointing.
“Things were just starting to look good. Results are starting to turn, the boys are playing well and I was feeling confident with my own game having not conceded in our last two games,” he says.
The only consolation is the chance to have surgery before Christmas.
“I’m lucky, the club doctor has pulled some strings and got me in to see a surgeon in Brisbane,” Moss says.
