An Update On Injured Players.

9 months ago By David Seabourne

Injury crisis worsens but is there good news on the horizon?

Chad Field's knee injury is potentially serious, Following a scan last week, the club have arranged for Chad to see a private surgeon during the coming week to provide an accurate prognosis and propose the best way forward. This is extremely sad as Chad was playing well and with great confidence, and now will be unable to play for a considerable period of time.

Unfortunately Corey Heath is in a similar position and is seeing an ankle specialist this week.

Sami El-Abd suffered a hamstring injury on Saturday and is expected to be out for 2-3 weeks.

The good news is that Keaton Wood has responded well to treatment and is hoping to be able to return to the team this coming Saturday.

Ollie Pearce continues to undergo treatment but is returning to full training this week and hopes to be match fit in a couple of weeks. There is no guarantee that he will not suffer a recurrence of his groin injury however, and if he does an operation followed by a lengthy period of recovery will be needed.

James Crane undergoes his operation this week and assuming that it is successful, hopes to be returning to full training by the end of March.

Away from injuries, Ben Swallow will sit out the match at Hungerford as he completes his three match suspension, but Richard Gilot will be available for selection.

The club have been negotiating with a Football League club to bring in a striker on loan before Saturday, and are also looking at two players at training who are potential signings. Another player who is on the club's radar is being watched during the week.

As soon as any news on signings becomes definite, we will of course let everyone know.
