Jordan Sinnott has suffered yet another injury setback, just two days after convincing Martin Allen to give him a chance in pre-season training.
The midfielder’s name was included on Allen’s list of players who were made available for free transfer this summer. But having worked hard to get fit, Sinnott refused to go out on loan, instead telling Allen he wanted a chance to show his talent in pre-season.
For a player who missed four and a half months last season through an ankle injury, it appeared as if his luck might be turning.
Allen said: “He has trained all summer and he told me he didn’t want to go out on loan, he told me he wasn’t going out on loan and he told me he’s going to come back in pre-season training and show me what he can do.
“When I put the phone down I kind of liked his determination and attitude. He didn’t say it with a bad attitude, he was very positive and I quite liked his passion.”
But then came yet more bad news for the 24-year-old.
“Two days ago I had a call that he’s got a fracture on the side of his wrist,” said Allen.
