So far, we have had a very fortunate run with injuries, but today things took a turn for the worse.

McNally, Pownall, and Woods all picked up what looked like pretty bad injuries. According to JD, McNally suffered a suspected fractured cheekbone; Pownall an ACL, and Woods possible elbow ligament damage. On top of that Ridyard seemed to be struggling more and more as the game progressed.

We only have seven backs in our squad, and one of those (Higginson) is out on loan to Rochdale. We will really miss the three injured players, (plus Ridyard, heaven forbid) and could well struggle to fill key positions. The D/R guys are doing brilliantly - all four of them today - but presumably we need to fill essential positions with 'our own' players.

I'd be interested to hear thoughts on this situation.

Agreed Alan, the injuries didn’t look good, though no injuries are good, we missed McNally big time today, and were very scrappy, dropped a lot of ball , thought Dews did the same.
I agree about Riddy, he didn’t look fit today, I assume that’s why Woods was kicking, today a good half back pairing wood have ripped us apart, Finn looks like he can’t bend his back, which is a shame because he’s been a decent player, but Dews didn’t offer much threat really.

I to am impressed with the DRs, I like Bentley more and more,you never know Swift might be back for us next week , but he scored 3 for Saints today,and if Richo keeps his place we might get Fages,I like Jack Welsby as well.

As for our own players, getting thin on the ground now,hopefully Marsh will be back for Pownall,and Iain Thorniley has been brilliant,I’m not sure aboutSpencer either , is he injured?With Batley next and Sheff at the LSV things don’t get easy,the 5 teams above us all won today so it’s status quo.

The injuries are worrying though.

Pity we don’t have a reserve side anymore. Mind you that was dismantled to cater for glory.
Not looking so glorious now. Many will step off the ride, if investment is not forthcoming.

How many reserve teams are there ?? When we had one recently they hardly played

A bigger, more experienced squad yes, reserve team no for me

A good turnout yesterday for an Easter Monday game, I personally enjoy the current ride more than the poop or bust days - if nothing else we have players busting a gut for the cause

Tom has been playing with a heavily strapped knee/leg, and only been doing 15-20 minutes in the second half, while Douglas, or one of the other forwards has a breather. It appears that he may well be carrying an injury. (as I suspect Ridyard is)

Hopefully they were 'rested' after Friday. Whichever way you look at it, we have problems in the backs though!

We don’t have many reserve teams because most have abolished them blaming them on lack of fixtures. Both I would say run in conjunction with each other.

For me a bigger squad is only short term, nothing long term. Back to square one again. No clear pathway for youth getting to the first team.

It’s a recurring record and everyone ignores it, until it’s too late.
