NEWS | Duo to miss out with hamstring injuries

Murphy and Collins ruled out

15 August 2019


The duo of Rhys Murphy and captain Lee Collins will both spend time on the sidelines after suffering hamstring injuries on Tuesday night.

Murphy had to replaced soon after grabbing the opening goal at Ebbsfleet in midweek whilst Collins was withdrawn at half-time.

Confirmed as hamstring injuries after full-time by manager Darren Sarll, the Glovers boss has issued a further update on their prognosis. 

"They’re struggling as of now, which is a shame because we’re thin. You never realise how stretched you are until these things happen.

"Players such as Murphy and Collins, their influence is huge. I think we caught it at the right time and took them out of the game.

"Collins wanted to play through, but I would rather not risk it and miss him for one or two games rather than six to eight. It’s far too early to tell in terms of a timeframe, but you’re looking at a minimum of two weeks.”
