Crewe Alexandra have received some good news in the progress of midfielder Josh Lundstram. The 21-year-old made five appearances earlier in the season but suffered a stress fracture of the ankle back in late October.
The Staffordshire-based youngster also suffered a slight set-back in his rehab when the bone was not knitting as quickly as expected – but he has now received positive news that the fracture has healed and he can resume running and hopefully non-contact training soon.
David Artell told crewealex.net: “Josh has received some good news in regards to his stress fracture and it is all heading in the right direction for him.
“He has had that confirmed by the specialist and we will increase the load accordingly. He will resume running and we will see how he is after the first couple of days. The specialist will then assess him again to see if there is an inflammation response to the increase in the work. If there is then we will put him straight out again.
The boss added: “We will acted cautiously with him but it is good news that he is heading in the right direction.”
