Crewe boss David Artell has revealed that Eddie Nolan has suffered a slight set-back in his rehab after suffering some soreness as he embarked on some slight running.
The Irishman was taken in for a follow-up scan and it was revealed that the tear is longer into the tendon than first anticipated.
Meanwhile, Harry Pickering has encouragingly participating in non-contact training and Paul Green can now bend his knee at 90 degrees after a promising scan result.
David told the club’s official website: “Eddie felt it a bit when he was running so we sent him for his follow up scan. I was told there the tear extends longer into the tendon and that will set him back another couple of weeks.
“Paul can bend his knee at 90 degrees now, so he is heading in the right direction and we remain hopeful that he will available in the New Year.
“Harry is taking part in non-contact training. He is wearing brightly coloured bibs, so no one goes near him! It is so he can get back into it and get used to twisting and turning again without too much stress going through the hamstring.”
