The Brentford star suffered a broken leg against Ipswich Town on Saturday13:18 Sunday 10 April 2016, 13:18 10 Apr 2016
It has been memorable fortnight for Alan Judge for both the right and wrong reasons.
Last month, the Dubliner made his senior international debut for Ireland in the 1-0 victory over Switzerland. The Brentford star has been one of The Championship's most impressive players in the league this year as he looked to force his way into Martin O'Neill's plans for Euro 2016.

On Saturday afternoon, those hopes were ended after the 27-year-old broke his right leg against Ipswich. An early tackle from Luke Hyam ended Judge's season.
Brentford confirmed the leg break on Saturday evening. In a statement on their website, the club revealed that; "the nature of his management and long-term prognosis cannot be speculated on at this time, however it should be stated that a full recovery is not in question."
