Ryan might not travel to illness
Ryan Colclough’s stop/start season could continue after he was struck down by an untimely heavy cold. The winger is rated as a major doubt for tomorrow’s trip to Carlisle United after only returning to first-team action as a late substitute against near neighbours Port Vale.
Colclough had made a return after five weeks out with hip and hamstring problems and the club will have to assess how he is over the next 24 hours before deciding if we will travel with the squad to Cumbria.
Manager Steve Davis told crewealex.net: “Ryan has a heavy cold and is doubtful for tomorrow. He has gone to see the doctor today, so we will have to assess how he is.
“He got some game time against Port Vale on Saturday, not a lot, but it was good to have him back. He had only trained for a few days so we have to be a bit patient with him.
“He has had a frustrating season so far, with his hip, groin and then hamstring. He is picking up those niggling injuries and little set-backs because he is having a bit of growth spurt as well at the same time.
He added: “You have to take that into consideration. He is still growing physically and is still only 18, but he is a talented lad. When he was fit at the beginning of the season he was our best forward by a mile. He was looking dangerous and threatening so it will be good to have him back.”
