Pompey blow as Pitman undergoes knee operation

Brett Pitman could miss up to four weeks following a knee operation.

Pompey's injury problems continue to mount after Brett Pitman today underwent a knee operation

And the Blues' leading scorer is expected to be sidelined for up to four weeks.

The nine-goal striker went under the surgeon's knife to remove a piece of floating tissue.

The problem has dogged Pitman for the past month, yet he has continued to put in his goal-scoring performances.

However, it has been decided to now operate, ruling him out for an estimated 2-4 weeks, depending on how swiftly the knee settles.

On Monday, Pitman had an operation on the broken nose he sustained against Fleetwood last month.
