Head of sports science and medicine, Rodger Wylde has admitted the treatment room at the Proact is a little crowded thesedays but it’s that much of a concern at this stage.

The latest addition is of course Sam Morsy with the midfielder limping off against Doncaster Rovers last weekend, and he has now joined three players who have ‘hamstring’ tweaks.

Speaking to the Official Site Wylde talked about the similar injuries sustained by Morsy, Gary Roberts and Daniel Jones.

‘All three have the same injury. They came on very quickly in the games, they tried to play on and then had to come off. They’re not severe injuries, they’re just minor hamstring injuries, so they won’t be out for a great deal of time – perhaps two weeks each.’

Those three aren’t the only concerns either, new loan signing, defender Georg Margreitter missed the weekend’s game after picking up a concussion in the midweek encounter with Preston North End at Deepdale and the Austrian is still following his ‘post concussion guidelines’ but importantly progressing well.

‘The indications are that he will be fine for this weekend and Notts County.’

For longer term injuries, Wylde also confirmed that Drew Talbot has recently undergone his ‘rare’ operation and he’s on two week post op work at the moment and very light exercises, but it will be at least ten weeks before he can be considered for playing.

With Sam Hird things also need to continue to be taken slowly, as he also has another ten weeks of work to do before thinking of a return.

‘They’re both progressing steadily, and as we get further on into these injuries we can then get more aggressive with the training as time goes by.’
