dr martens work shoes Boro fears are realised
And although the influential left back was at first hopeful that the injury to his left knee was not too bad he now fears that he has damaged ligaments.
And that could throw Borough, who have one of the smallest squads in the Dr Martens Premier Division, into crisis with manager Roger Ashby likely to have to bring in a player on loan.
A concerned Ashby said today: “It does not look too clever for Micky, he is in a lot of discomfort and was unable to go to work yesterday. He has been icing the injury but it has not made a lot of difference and he fears that he has damaged the knee ligaments.
“Our physio, Richie Norman, will take a good look at Micky tonight but, obviously, he has to be rated as extremely doubtful for Saturday’s home game with Weston Super Mare.
“And that would present us with a major problem as there is no other naturally left footed defender at the club and I would have to look at getting someone in on loan.
“But we do not want to get ahead of ourselves, the first thing is to assess the damage to Micky’s knee tonight.”
Striker Gez Murphy will be back for the Weston game after missing the Tiverton game as his wife gave birth on the morning of the game and young striker James Fox will be hoping to get another chance to impress after going on for the last halfhour at Tiverton.
The 21 year old, who was signed on a non contract basis last Thursday after being released by Tamworth, went on up front in a reshuffled team after Love was carried off following a crunching tackle with Tiverton sweeper Steve Winter.
And Ashby said: “James played up front alongside Kevin Wilkin and showed some nice touches, paces and a lot of promise. He is knee to impress and has an excellent attitude.”
