Perth Glory defender Scott Neville will have surgery tomorrow to repair the lateral ligament in his right knee that he damaged during training last Thursday.

Neville will be out for up to six months.

“Obviously to receive the news today that I require surgery was disappointing,” Neville said.

“My focus is now on my rehab with the club physios and doctors so I can return to action as soon as possible.

“Missing games for Perth Glory will be tough, but we have a great squad this season.”

Perth Glory wishes Scott a speedy recovery.
