ANDREW VORCE - Wednesday, August 10, 2011
United States defender Frank Simek faces up to eight weeks on the sideline after scans show a tear in his hip muscle.

The Carslisle United man was forced off just four minutes before halftime over the weekend after complaining of some discomfort. Carlisle were already in trouble having given up two goals in the opening 32 minutes with the visitors hitting a third before the break.

Scans on Tuesday confirmed that the Saint Louis, Missouri native sustained a tear in the muscle which forced him out of the game. Simek was therefore unable to be a part of Carlisle's penalty shoot out win in the Carling Cup over Oldham.

"It's unfortunate," Carlisle United coach Greg Abbott said on their official website. "The important thing is that Frank gets his treatment and gets himself fit as soon as possible."

"It's one of those injuries that will have to be allowed to settle, so he'll rest first and then we'll start him on his rehab."

"He's a fit lad but we will want to make sure that he's right before we really step things up. He'll be a miss, but it's one of those things that comes to test you."
