Altrincham sports therapist Tommy Uda has given a promising update on the injury to Ryan Colclough.
The former Wigan Athletic winger went off in the weekend’s game with Dagenham & Redbridge, which Phil Parkinson’s side won 1-0 away from home.
Speaking to the club website, Uda said: “I have spoken to him, and it’s looking promising, even though he hasn’t yet been able to have the scan that would tell us if there is a break or not.
“The great thing is, he says he has been completely loading weight on the injured leg and even hopping on it.
“We have at least been able to organise an MRI scan for this Thursday and that should tell us how much ligament damage has been sustained.
“He seems really positive, and it’s just possible we may have escaped one there. We should have a better idea later in the week.”
