Steve says important that teenager keeps his spirits high after slight step back from action
Steve Davis has told the club’s official web-site that he hopes Ryan Colclough latest set-back won’t keep him out for too long. It is unlikely that the talented winger will be risked for this weekend’s clash with Coventry after he was forced off with an abdominal injury against Nottingham Forest’s Under-21s earlier in the week.
Colclough, who scored a match winning brace against Tranmere Rovers back in August, had expected to return to fitness this weekend after groin and hamstring problems that seem to have been brought on by a recent growth spurt.
The Alex boss continues to be cautious with the teenager and says that it is important to keep his spirits up.
Steve told crewealex.net: “It has been a stop start season for Ryan of late. He started the season really well and was out most threatening forward player, but he has picked up one or two niggling injuries and has been in-and-out of the group.
“Coco is no different. He is a young lad and is desperate to play in as many games as he can. He has been frustrated to be on the side-lines because he is at his happiest and best when he playing in successive games.
The boss added: “It has been a difficult period for him and it is important that the other players, staff and physio’s keep him going and keep his spirits high. He wants to be involved as much as possible and I am sure he will come through and be back in contention soon.”
