SEAGULLS boss Craig Hogg has given an injury update on the three players who had to replaced in the first half of Saturday’s cup defeat at Holywell Town.

 The manager reports: “It is not great news on the injury front again as we have a couple more players who have picked up serious injuries.

 “Kristian Platt has been to casualty this morning (Sunday) and the x-ray revealed no fracture to his knee. However, we are now in the process of referring him for a scan as soon as possible and the early indication is that it likely to be a similar issue to that suffered by Damien Ketley and Gwion Owen.

 “We will know more on Platty once we have the results of the scan.

 “Jordan Carrington has had confirmation of  a fracture to his collarbone after a nasty fall in yesterday’s match and so he will be out of action for at least two months.

“Tom McCready was taken off very early against Holywell as a precaution after an issue with his lower back.

 “At the moment he is not good at all, but we hope to see him back in action for us in the next two or three weeks following treatment.

 “Admittedly it hasn’t been a great coupe of weeks where injuries are concerned and I’ve not known a pre-season quite like it to be honest.

 “It has been really unusual to have so many players go down with serious injuries within the space of a couple of weeks. But we get on with it, hope to see them back well soon and we go again.”
