Injury Update On Molyneux And Williams

Luke Molyneux, Hartlepool United

Luke Molyneux and Luke Williams are set for slightly longer on the sidelines than had been hoped.

Molyneux picked up a leg injury during the pre-season friendly at York City in July, while Williams tweaked his knee during training last week.

Both injuries have failed to settle down in the way the Club’s medical staff were hoping, therefore the pair have undergone MRI scans this week.

The results have revealed minor underlying issues for both players and the Club will now discuss these matters with specialists before deciding upon the best course of action.

“It’s obviously incredibly frustrating for us and the two players,” admitted Craig Hignett.

“We’re really unlucky to have two like this at the same time but the most important thing now is that we get the right care for the lads to make sure they’re back as quickly and safely as possible.

“We’ll be liaising with specialists over the results from their scans and take their advice over the best course of action to return them to fitness. 

“Neither injuries are serious issues but right now both players will remain out of action, so we wanted to keep supporters updated.”
