George Donnelly is expected to remain side lined for at least another two weeks as he continues to recover from the ankle injury which forced him to limp off against Dagenham and Redbridge at the end of last month.
Manager Keith Hill admits that George’s injury is worse than first thought and says it is slow progress.
“We thought it was the slightest turning of the ankle but it has proved to be a lot worse than that,” said Hill.
“It’s probably going to be another two, possibly three weeks, before he’ll be involved again, so it’s a slow one. But we dealt with Scott Hogan being out for four weeks and we’ll have to do the same with George. It’ll be like signing a new player when he’s fit and available again, and hopefully he’ll be back, ready and raring to go within two or three weeks.”
