Godden To Spend More Time On The Sidelines

Godden To Spend More Time On The Sidelines

Brian Laws has revealed that striker Matt Godden could be out of action for another six weeks.

The striker hasn't figured in a game since the match against Bristol Rovers last month and it's been revealed that the player has now had an operation on his knee, and during that they found a tear on his cartilage so he is now out of contention for between four to six weeks as it heels.

The tear wasn't initially discovered on the scan he had to begin with, and only found during the operation hence why he's going to be out for so long.

It's hoped his recovery won't take too long and that certainly he'll not suffer any complications.

In other injury news Laws has already talked about welcoming Chris Iwelumo back for the Northampton game, and the only absentees should be Godden and Michael Collins.

Everybody else may not be classed as 100% match fit, but they are fit and in contention.
