Torquay United prospect Danny Sullivan ruled out of action for fortnight
JUST when he was in top form, Danny Sullivan's season has been interrupted by a knee injury which is expected to sideline him for at least a fortnight.
The Plymouth-born Gulls second-year scholar has been attracting some rave reviews, playing well and scoring goals.
He was at it again when a United Under-21 side played Reading's Youth team away to make up for a blank weekend of league action.
Sullivan set up young pro Ashley Yeoman to give United the lead, and he gave a livewire performance to help his side reach half-time at 1-1.
But early in the second half Sullivan twisted his right knee in a tackle.
His withdrawal certainly didn't help United, who were hit by three Reading goals in 15 minutes. The Royals went on to win 6-1.
"Danny looked as good as anyone on the field, for either side," United youth coach Robbie Herrera.
"We played so well in the first half, moving the ball well, but we conceded three goals from set-pieces early in the second half.
"It was disappointing that we stopped playing in the second half, apart from the odd burst of good passing."
