Sam Corcoran faces up to six weeks on the sideline with a foot injury.
The 23-year-old limped out of St Albans City’s 2-1 win over Bishop’s Stortford, and joint manager James Gray feared it was a recurrence of a foot injury that plagued the midfielder last year.
The manager’s worries were alleviated when Tuesday’s x-ray came back negative for broken bones. However, a “mark” on the x-ray means he will miss four to six weeks.
“He’s already been out a week-and-a-half so best case he’s out for another two weeks and worse case four,” said Gray.
“We’ve got cover in Lee Clarke, Matt Taylor and James Kaloczi - he’s back from his loan after Saturday’s game - so we’ll be alright.
“We had a few trialists down this week, too. They’ll play in tonight’s reserve game against Walton and Hersham - we won’t make any decisions until we’ve seen them in match action.”
Corcoran’s injury means he will miss City’s games against Ebbsfleet, Bromley, Maidenhead and possibly Wealdstone on September 20, but he should be back for the first game in October, at home against Chelmsford.
