Midfielder facing at least six weeks out
Peter Sweeney is likely to be out for a minimum of six weeks after he suffered a suspected broken foot against Northampton Town on Tuesday night.
The midfielder is due to go for another X-ray today, but an initial scan suggests he will be ruled out for the foreseeable future.
Club physio Mike Rayner said: “Peter has gone for another X-ray today, but there is a strong suggestion that he has a fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his foot. That would mean a minimum of six weeks if it is confirmed. We are going to have to be patient and let nature takes its course.”
Meanwhile, centre-back Will Antwi has had an injection in his injured hip to remove calcium deposits around the tendon. This has been successful in clearing up the injury, but he needs to have a rest period of two weeks before he can start training again.
Curtis Osano is back in light training and has been running again this week, but Saturday’s match at Dagenham & Redbridge is likely to come too soon.
