Injuries cause squad concerns

The ROCKS will make use of their enforced ten-day break from league and cup action to try and bolster their injury-hit squad.

 

Manager Jack Pearce told the Post he would look to bring in a centre-half and possibly a forward after three key players picked up injuries in the past two league games.

 

Saturday’s scheduled game against Corinthian Casuals has been postponed because of the south-west London club’s continuing presence in the FA Cup.

 

Keaton Wood limped out of Saturday’s draw at Potters Bar in the first half with an ankle injury. Further first-half knocks to Dan Smith and Corey Heath on Tuesday night mean the Rocks’ squad is stretched to breaking point.

 

Pearce said: “Everyone knows our squad is very small but we have got ten days to try and add to it. That is going to be very difficult.

 

“We know it’s not easy to attract quality players to our neck of the woods at this stage of the season. The problems were there for all to see last year but we just need to work hard and see what happens.”

 

As well as losing three key players, Pearce is also worried their absence means his side has lost three good physical players who are likely to be hard to replace.
