Lens’ Jimmy Cabot suffers ACL injury

Lens have this morning announced that wing-back Jimmy Cabot, who came on as a substitute in the win over Montpellier on Saturday, has suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury which will keep him out of action over an extended period of time.

The 28-year-old will undergo surgery this week. Since making the move from Angers this summer, Cabot has made 11 appearances for Franck Haise’s side, registering one assist.

The Frenchman had also been kept out of action for much of the second half of last season with an ankle injury, putting an early end to a season that had seen him successfully make the transition to the wing-back role and notch six assists for Le SCO.

The Artois side, who currently sit in third place, are due to travel to Marseille next weekend in what will be a decisive showdown among two of Ligue 1’s main contenders for the Champions League spots this season.
