Luke Allen could miss time, too

Sam Corcoran could have extended time of the sideline after picking up an injury on Tuesday.

Corcoran hit the turf and was in clear pain in the 33rd minute of the loss to Eastbourne Borough, leading to his substitution.

After the game, joint manager James Gray feared it could be a broken metatarsal, an injury that has forced Corcoran to miss significant time since joining the club.

“There was no one near him and he’s gone down so it could be his metatarsal,” he said.

“It’s been six months without a problem and we thought everything had healed. He may need an x-ray.”

If it is a recurrence, it will be the third time he has broken his foot while at St Albans City.
