IT’S INJURY WOE FOR SAMMIE
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.”
