James Set For Scan On Groin Injury

11 December 2019

Dave Challinor is crossing his fingers that the injury

picked up by Luke James on Tuesday night is not too serious, with the front man

set to undergo a scan this week.

James was forced off just before the hour mark with a groin

injury during the FA Cup replay win over Exeter City at The Vic and the Pools

boss admitted there are concerns it could be serious.

“Luke has been carrying a little bit of a groin problem butbeen managing it,” Challinor told Pools TV.

“We've got a concern over how he might be and it would be a big

blow if we lost him for a significant period but if that's the case other players

will need to step up.

“If we have to go in to the market to bring in replacements

then we'll do that but fingers crossed it's not too serious so we'll find out

as quickly as we can by getting him scanned.

“As much for him as anything else, we hope it's not a long-term one.”
