Gary Waddock admits Aldershot Town captain Callum Reynolds is no closer to a comeback with his ankle still proving a problem.

Reynolds missed the home game against Maidstone United and the New Year’s Day fixture at Woking with a swollen ankle that had required stitches but it was thought that the injury was mainly superficial. With the centre-back complaining that the ankle would swell every evening, Waddock said on New Year’s Day that he hoped it would eventually settle down.

However, with the problem on-going, Reynolds has had a scan on the injury but even that has failed to shed any light on the cause of his discomfort. And Waddock admits at the moment is it unclear when Reynolds may be fit to lead the Shots again.

“He’s still got the problem he’s had for the last few weeks,” Waddock said after the draw with Ebbsfleet United on Saturday. “We aren’t getting much progress so he’s got to go back and have another chat with the specialist.

“He had a scan and that was all-clear but there hasn’t been much progress since so we have to go back and have another conversation to see where we are. He’s our skipper and he’s a big influence in the dressing room but we have to make sure he’s right.

“We don’t want to rush things. At the moment there isn’t much progression though.”
