Coley expects trio's absence

28 September 2015

John Coleman expects to be without three regular starters for tomorrow's game with Yeovil but is confident that whoever he picks will get the job done.

Defender Tom Davies missed Saturday's win at Crawley, captain Terry Gornell was only fit enough for the bench and centre back Dean Winnard was replaced after less than half an hour through injury.

All three are being assessed by medical staff but the manager is not expecting to have them available for the clash with the Glovers.

“It's just a wait and see process,” he said. “It's more of a time thing for all of them. Obviously we'll know tomorrow but I'm not confident in any of the three of them being fit.

“Terry's been struggling with his ankle, Tom has a knee problem and I think Deano has a bit of sciatica to be honest. He's been struggling with his hamstring but I think it's back related. We'll just have to wait and see. We're preparing as if they aren't going to be fit and if they are then it's a bonus.

“We did the job on Saturday but Yeovil will be a completely different proposition. Don't forget we played against ten men for half the game so we aren't getting carried away about Saturday. Whoever I bring in I'm confident in. We've got a good squad that is capable of absorbing the problems that we've got. If we get too many more we probably won't be able to absorb it and then we might have to look at the loan market.”
