Jay Rollins is expected to be back in Boston United action soon after pulling out of yesterday’s squad.
The attacker was named on the bench for the 2-1 defeat to Altrincham, but felt unable to take his place amongst the substitutes after feeling a tightness in his groin during the warm-up.
Rollins has recently returned from a long-term groin injury, but started the previous two games, played in the space of four days, which took its toll.
Manager Craig Elliott said: “It was a massive blow. We knew he was touch and go before the game.
“He did the warm-up but didn’t feel confident being able to contribute, so we had to pull him out of the subs’s bench.
“You look how well he’s played, that’s a massive blow.
“I think it’s more fatigue so I’m hopeful. He’s a very good player and it’s no coincidence we played well in the two games he started. I hope he’s back soon.”
