Marsh ruled out and a delay to Palmer's return

Robbo hopeful trio will be available for the visit of Sheffield Wednesday

15 October 2021

Midfielder George Marsh has been ruled out for possibly over a month with a foot injury, while striker Ollie Palmer’s return from a calf strain will take a little longer.

“George Marsh has broken a bone in his foot,” said Head Coach Mark Robinson after Thursday's training session. “Unfortunately, George is going to be out for four to six weeks, it was just in a challenge. Ollie has had a setback, so he could be another three or four weeks.”

This follows the news earlier this week that defender Will Nightingale has been ruled out for three to four months, after he suffered an injury in training.

Robbo is hopeful that defender Nesta Guinness-Walker, midfielder Luke McCormick and forward Aaron Pressley will be available for selection for the League One meeting with Sheffield Wednesday at The Cherry Red Records Stadium tomorrow afternoon.

“Nesta had a kick, but we think he’s okay,” said Robbo. “Aaron has a strain in his quad, but he had modified training on Thursday so he should be okay. Then we’ve had Luke being ill, but he’s also come through modified training. We just need to see how he is. They should all be involved in some way.

“I like a bit of adversity! It brings people together and we’ll be ready to go – no matter what personnel we’ve got on Saturday.”
