Christian Jolley is battling to save his Woking career after spending longer to recover from his injured right ankle than he had hoped, report Surrey Live.
The 30-year-old former AFC Wimbledon midfielder has only featured in the first three games this season after picking up the injury against Salford City in pre-season and deciding to play through the pain. But after a lengthy period of rehabilitation, Jolley is still not sure whether the ankle is right even though the amiable playmaker has started running again.
It’s a frustrating time for Jolley who is no longer being paid by Woking – even though the club are allowing him to remain involved in his bid to salvage his season.
“The long and short of it is I got hurt against Salford City in pre season,” he said. “We treated it conservatively but it was a bit more sinister.
“Basically I ruptured a ligament [in my ankle] where it holds the two bones in your leg together. I was lucky not to break my leg, basically.
“So PJ [physio Prajwal Rai] has been great and the club have given me all the support to get me to this point. I’ve been in touch with the specialist and yes, it’s sort of last-chance saloon basically.”
