Lecointe Update

ARGYLE striker Matt Lecointe was scheduled to undergo an exploratory operation on his injured knee on Monday.

Matt, 19, missed the whole of last season after injuring his anterior cruciate ligament in a pre-season game. He returned to take part in two of the Pilgrims’ matches this pre-season, only to suffer some problems in the same knee.

Medical experts are certain that Matt’s current discomfort is not a recurrence of the previous injury but believe it is associated to it.

This week’s exploratory operation will allow Matt and the club to determine the best course of action to take to for his recovery.
