COLLINGWOOD is set to be without important goalkicker Jordan De Goey for the rest of the home and away season after the Pies confirmed his long-term injury.

"[It's a] pretty significant injury," Magpies football boss Geoff Walsh told the club's website.

"It'll be a couple of months I think before we see Jordy back in action. It looked fairly innocuous but they are serious injuries to the tendons. 

"It'll be a fair while before we see him back, unfortunately."
