Manager John Coleman has said that he doesn’t expect any of our injured players to return in time for the game against Stevenage this weekend and that he may have to make a move or two in the loan market to bolster us – and he did that with the arrival of goalkeeper Jesse Joronen.

Speaking to the Official Site the manager started with the injured Aaron Chapman and admitted it didn’t look that good for him and obviously he gave this interview before Joronen came in.

‘It’s not looking too good. He had an x-ray and I think there was too much swelling to see the actual extent of the damage. He’s going to see a specialist. As it stands now I think we have to accept that we’re going to lose him for quite some time.’

Coleman went on to say that it’s obviously a massive blow because he was looking good for us, but he knows he has a good character and he’ll come through this and enjoy a good career and he wishes him the best in terms of a speedy recovery.

With injuries in general, the gaffer goes on to say.

‘You can moan about it or go and do something about it. I prefer to do the latter. We’ll have to look at our options with regards to bringing another keeper in.’

In the other injury news related to the first team, the gaffer goes on to say it is looking better for Michael Liddle and Adam Buxton.

‘I think they’re seeing more of physio Paul Morgan than his wife at the moment. They’ve both coming on well. I think Michael should be back in training next week and Adam could be back the following week.’
