Worcester City win comes at a cost for FC Halifax Town boss Neil Aspin

FC HALIFAX TOWN manager Neil Aspin will be hoping that The Shay treatment room will have cleared in the next few days.

FC HALIFAX TOWN manager Neil Aspin will be hoping that The Shay treatment room will have cleared in the next few days.

The Shaymen return to Blue Square North action next Tuesday against Altrincham at Moss Lane, but will be waiting on two casualties of their last outing.

Town collected a seventh consecutive win with a 1-0 victory at Worcester City, but it came at a price after Dale Johnson and Lee Gregory both limped off.

Johnson had to be carried from the St George’s Lane pitch after suffering an ankle injury in a goal mouth melee and is thought to have suffered medial ligament damage.

Town physio Dan Stolworthy said: “In the first 48 hours of an injury it’s hard to diagnose what it is. However, that is where he is getting his pain.

“It’s a similar injury to what Neil Tolson had earlier this season and he was out for a few weeks, but it will become clearer over the next few days.”

Meanwhile, Gregory has a thigh injury but Stolworthy said: “He went in head-on with the goalkeeper and got caught but he’ll be fine.”

Paul Marshall missed the game due to illness, while Dan Gardner continued his return to match fitness after making an appearance at the end of the game.
