On-loan midfielder Paul Green will visit a specialist on Thursday to assess the extent of the damage to his fractured hand. Green completed the 90 minutes against Lincoln City on Saturday and notched his first goal for the club from the penalty spot. He also created the fourth goal finished sublimely by Jordan Bowery.
Crewe Alexandra manager David Artell is hoping that the injury will not need an operation and Green will be able to continue playing with a cast.
David told crewealex.net: “Paul fell on his hand in the first half. It happened fairly early on but he didn’t want to come off. I didn’t realise he had broken his hand and that just goes to show what a professional he is.
“We have seen the X-ray and it is a spiral fracture, which is not a good fracture by all accounts, but he will see a consultant in Leeds on Thursday and we will have to see which way it goes.
“He may need an operation or he may not. We are hoping that he doesn’t need an op and that he will be able to continue playing with a cast. There are all possibilities but knowing Paul Green as I do, he will be doing everything he can to play.”
