Striker Jake Wright could be sidelined for up to three months with a torn hamstring and now Boston United are hoping they can avoid a mini injury crisis.

Alex Whittle and Karl Byrne both limped out of the weekend’s 1-1 draw with Guiseley, suffering from groin problems.

While the full-backs may still be in contention for Saturday’s trip to Gloucester City, Wright is expected to be out for some time.

The on-loan striker had been playing with a hamstring twinge, which went from bad to worse while training with parent club York City on Thursday.

“Jake’s had a bit of a hamstring problem and we’ve tried to manage it,” manager Craig Elliott said.

“He’s done some extra with York in training on Thursday morning and it’s backfired. He’s torn it pretty bad and we’re looking at two to three months he’ll be out.”
