Corinthian-Casuals suffered a major blow to their promotion chances when goalkeeper and captain Danny Bracken suffered a nasty injury which could rule him out for the rest of the season.

With just twenty minutes gone at Walton Casuals, Bracken looked to have made a routine save but instantly looked distressed as he seeked medical attention.

“It doesn’t look good for my brother,” said manager and elder of the two James Bracken. “Hopefully it isn’t too bad.

“He’s distraught. He prides himself on being available every week and the levels of performance he puts in is unreal.”

James Bracken also took to Twitter after the match to say “To see any player suffer an injury like today is hard. When it’s your brother it makes it wrenching.

“Everyone at Corinthian-Casuals needs to keep stepping up. Me included.

“You don’t replace a Danny Bracken. You can’t. But he’ll be back soon just like we’ll be ready 3pm Saturday.”

The Corinthian-Casuals boss’ plans were thrown into chaos with the injury to Danny Bracken. With no replacement keeper as a named substitute, eyes turned to Josh Uzun – possibly the smallest player on the field to act as the last line of defence.

Uzun produced a man of the match performance making a string of excellent saves to prevent a counter-attacking Walton from taking the lead.
