Herve Pepe-Ngoma will bounce back from his season-ending injury, says teammate Courtney Wildin.
The summer signing made just nine appearances for Boston United before a freak ACL injury at Stockport County saw him ruled out for the rest of the campaign.
But Wildin, who is close friends with his fellow Leicester-based teammate, believes the 20-year-old has the character to come back even stronger next term.
“He’s taking it ok,” Wildin told The Standard.
“Its one of those things, a terrible injury and the last thing you want.
“But he’s just got to prepare and do his rehab right and hopefully be back as soon as possible.
“He’s definitely got a big future ahead of him and he’s a great lad as well.”
