Stoke's Lawrence has ankle surgery

Liam Lawrence has undergone successful surgery on an ankle injury. The Stoke star needed the operation after tripping over his dog and falling down the stairs.

He explained: "It all went well. We decided to operate just to make sure there was nothing else going on.

"In the exploratory operation the surgeon found a tear in the ligament that was catching and causing the pain.

"The specialist has repaired the problem and is very positive that I will make a full recovery."

The winger told the club's official web site: "I'm itching to get back out there and I'll hopefully be back out at the training ground very soon. I can't wait to get back playing."
