Injury updates on Freeman and Fisher

22 October 2014

Updates on duo who were injured in draw at Prenton Park.

First Team coach Micky Moore has revealed that frontman Alex Fisher Is set to be out of action until roughly December, after dislocating his shoulder in last night’s 0-0 draw with Tranmere Rovers.

On loan wing-back Kieron Freeman is also set to have a scan today, to discover the extent of a knee problem which forced him off during the first half.

The injuries were the downside to an otherwise positive night for our team, who produced an outstanding defensive display to pick up a valuable point on the road.

“Alex Fisher has dislocated his shoulder, so he’ll be out for between four and six weeks,” said Moore, who was addressing the media shortly after the final whistle.

“Kieron Freeman has twisted his knee and we won’t know the full extent of that for the next 48 hours. He’ll have to go for a scan.

“It seems that every game we’re playing, we’re losing two or three players,” continued Moore.

“Potentially now, we’ve got four centre-forwards out injured. We haven’t got the biggest squad in the world and we’ve brought Daniel Carr in, but lost another one.

“I can’t put my finger on it, and it’s just something that we can’t believe really. It’s been a ridiculous season for injuries.”

Reflecting on the game itself, Moore added: “The positives are that it’s a clean-sheet and a draw away from home.

“It’s disappointing that we didn’t win the game, but I don’t think we did enough to win it. Losing two more players [to injury], upset the rhythm of the game for us really.

“We’ll take the positives. That’s three draws on the trot now, two away from home, and if you can pick up draws away and win your home games, you’ll be there or thereabouts at the end of the season.”
