SAMMIE Sz­mod­ics’ an­kle in­jury could be worse, says Colch­ester boss John McGreal – but ad­mits it’s a blow.

Sz­mod­ics, 22, broke his leg last sea­son be­fore re­turn­ing this cam­paign.

But he was forced off in mid­week dur­ing their draw with Grimsby.

“We’ve spo­ken with (head physio) Tony (Flynn) and Sam and it’s more like an an­kle lig­a­ment in­jury, so we’re looking more weeks than months,” McGreal said.

“It’s good news in a way be­cause we thought he might have had a lit­tle bit of a re-break. It’s great news the in­jury isn’t more se­ri­ous but it’s a huge blow.”
