RYAN Semple’s return from injury has been put on hold following a setback.
The influential winger hoped to be fit and available for Saturday’s victory at Corby, but instead he may now be sidelined for some time after a reaction to his knee problems last Wednesday.
“He’s worked really hard to try to get fit and we thought he wasn’t far away – biut he’s not quite right,” said manager Jason Lee.
“He trained (last) Tuesday and we thought he did alright.
“But he had a reaction on the Wednesday.
“He may well need someone to have a look – be it a scan or whatever it is.
“He may have an underlying problem.
“Its a blow to us because Ryan’s an option we don’t have right now, and we all know what his game is all about.”
Trying to put a positive spin on the blow, Lee added: “It’s an opportunity for others to come in and move the team forward.
“Others need to worry about their performances and help us win games.
“We need to leave him alone for a bit and help him have time to get it right.”
