Hartlepool’s Fraser Kerr has been handed a boost following his weekend injury scare after initial scans found no obvious fracture in the defender’s foot.
The centre-back was forced off 15 minutes from time during Saturday’s defeat at Dagenham & Redbridge and there were worries that the Scot had sustained a serious injury.
However, those fears were allayed by tests carried out in hospital and Kerr is now working closely with the club’s medical staff to return to fitness as quickly as possible.
“The initial scan has told us there is no obvious fracture,” confirmed Callum Davidson.
“Fraser has been responding well to treatment so we will continue to monitor him closely over the next 10 to 14 days and during that period we will decide whether a further scan is necessary.
“However, the hope is that will continue to see him making good progress.”
