Finney Boost After Scan Reveals Natural Healing

22 February 2021

Oli Finney has received welcome news in his quest to be fit before the end of the season. It is hoped that the Staffordshire-based youngster could return in 6-8 weeks after a scan last week revealed that the bone is healing at it should.

Finney suffered a fracture of the leg away at Shrewsbury Town and the club were fearful that the 23-year-old would miss the remainder of the campaign.

Finney, who has scored 8 goals this season, visited a specialist on Thursday and received positive news.

David Artell told the club’s official website: “It was positive news for Oli and for us. The break is healing at it should be, so hopefully it appears that there is no need for an operation.

He added: “He will re-visit the specialist again in two weeks for another X-Ray and that will see how he is progressing and determine more of a return date, but I would expect it to be around six weeks. It may be a bit longer or less but hopefully in two weeks, he will be out of his boot and we can take it from there.”
