Midfielder Oli Finney will revisit a specialist on Thursday to determine how long he is expected to be out after he suffered a broken leg away at Shrewsbury. Finney was on the receiving end of a reckless challenge from Harry Chapman and the club’s fears were confirmed when a scan revealed a fracture of the leg.
Finney had been in sparkling form, scoring 8 goals in 31 matches and it is hoped that his latest scan will indicate that he can resume playing again this season.
Manager, David Artell told the club’s official website: “Oli will go for his latest X-ray on Thursday and we will see if the bone has knitted back together or if it needs a plate.
“If he requires a plate then we won’t be seeing him again until August. We are hoping for a positive outcome that will give him and us hope that he could play again this season.
“We are hopeful on some good news and in the meantime we will get plenty of milk and vitamin D down here to help with the calcium!
“The X-Ray will give us a better time scale on when we expect him to be back.”
