Ryan Colclough dobut for Saturday return after slight hamstring strain
Ryan Colclough has suffered a slight set-back in his return from his injury. The promising wide man complained of some tightness in his hamstring in yesterday’s training session and was withdrawn as a precaution.
It is hoped that the injury is not too serious and he may be able to resume training again later this week but he remains a doubt for this weekend’s trip to Brentford.
Colclough has missed the last month due a hip and groin problem after initially landing awkwardly on it against Accrington Stanley in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
Boss Steve Davis told crewealex.net: “Ryan had to pull out of training yesterday because he had some tightness in the top of his hamstring. Rob (Sharp) is assessing him and if it settles down then he could re-join the group towards the end of this week.
“This weekend’s game at Brentford may have come too quickly for him and we want to be sure with him. We want him to come back and stay with us. We don’t want him breaking down again.
“We have missed Ryan. He was arguably our biggest threat, creating and scoring goals. He scored two goals against Tranmere Rovers earlier in the season that won us the game and we do with him back as soon as possible but we have to be patient.”
