LENGHTHENING INJURY LIST ALREADY

4 years ago By Stevie R

The league season is barely one game old and already Leek Town manager Lee Casswell is looking at a lengthening injury list ahead of the big local derby against Kidsgrove on Tuesday at Harrison Park.

Striker Dan Cope, who has suffered a re-occurrence of the knee injury that kept him out of action for much of last season, is booked in for an MRI scan on Wednesday to determine the extent of the damage.

Cope has been joined on the sidelines by Anthony Danylyk who had to be stretchered off at Romulus on Saturday with ankle damage.

An ambulance was called for and when it arrived Danylyk was treated by Para-medics who decided that hospital treatment was not required.

However, when the midfield dynamo visited his local hospital on Sunday, the ankle was immediately immobilised in plaster after the consultant indicated that the ligament may well have become detached from the bone.

Danylyk has a further appointment on Wednesday and both he and Cope may be out for at least a month.

Meanwhile, striker Matt Haddrell has declared himself fit to play against his former club on Tuesday despite nursing a broken nose picked up in the season opener at Romulus on Saturday.

Ricky Bridge is likely to be called up into the 16 man squad after being the unlucky one to miss out on a shirt on Saturday.

Where next?
