NEWPORT County AFC striker Aaron O'Connor's injury nightmare continues as he has been forced to undergo a hernia operation in London.

The 30-year-old front man was the Exiles' top scorer last season and added the second goal in the play-off final victory over Wrexham at Wembley.

But a groin injury has ruled him out for the whole League Two campaign so far and the latest setback will keep him out for an estimated four to six weeks.

O'Connor posted a picture from his hospital bed on Twitter with the message: "op went well hopefully the last."

Wishing Aaron a speedy recovery - a truly unfortunate season.

Seems to be the same ailment of Roma's Balzaretti - a sports hernia.

Terrible news. Fear our promotion hopes have disappeared now as fans were banking on him to return and score the goals we desperately need. Can't believe the bad luck with injuries we've had this season. Amazing really that we are where we are in the table.
