The injury sustained by Danny Greenfield in Tuesday night’s game at AFC Fylde is not as bad as was first feared after a scan detected no fracture in his foot.
The midfield man was forced off just 19 minutes into the first half at Mill Farm and initial fears were that he had fractured a metatarsal, so he was taken for an x-ray.
However, initial investigations have shown no damage of that nature and now Greenfield will be further assessed to determine how long he can expect to be on the sidelines.
“Danny received an impact injury to the lateral aspect of his foot which caused him a lot of pain,” explained Moors Physio Jamie Sinclair.
“As a precaution, we deemed it was best to remove Danny from the play and to scan for structural damage, especially as Danny had previously fractured his fifth metatarsal last season which provoked similar symptoms.
“However, last night’s x-ray elicited no bony injury which we are naturally very pleased about.
“Danny is currently following management strategies to control his pain and inflammation and will be fully assessed in the near future.
“I’d like to give the medical staff at AFC Fylde my thanks in their assistance with this incident and best wishes for the rest of the season.”
