Blair Turgott has been ruled out for four to six weeks with knee cartilage damage.
The injury was sustained during the first half of Tuesday’s game against Eastleigh, and following a scan earlier this week it has been confirmed that the Stones captain will be out for at least a month.
We wish Blair well with his recovery and look forward to seeing him back on the pitch soon.
In terms of other squad news, the Stones have registered youngsters Dylan Florence and James Taylor. Both players are available to take part in tomorrow’s game against Oldham Athletic. Jack Paxman returns from suspension for Oldham, while Simon Walton is suspended. Rob Swaine, Dan Wishart and Sean Shields are cup tied.
