Barnsley striker Michael Coulson will miss the rest of the season after damaging his cruciate ligament for the second time in less than a year.

Coulson originally suffered a knee injury in April before making his first-team comeback for the Tykes in late November.

However, he has now hurt his knee in training again and will play no further part in Barnsley's bid to stay in the Championship.

"We had some very, very bad news last week regarding Michael's knee injury," physio Matt Konapinski told the club's official website.

"He was involved in a training ground collision and unfortunately he has had a recurrence of the cruciate ligament injury he had last year.

"It is really bad news and heartbreaking for Michael, but he will now be working hard over the next few months and through the summer to get back fit for the start of next season."

The 21-year-old had made three appearances for Barnsley this season - the last of which was as a substitute in the FA Cup at West Ham United earlier this month.
