Injury Update: Santos, Sparkes, Coulthirst, Pavey

On Ricardo Santos

“We have a target for Ricardo. We’re hoping for the FA Trophy game in the middle of December.

“He’s responding well to treatment on his thigh.”

On Dan Sparkes

“Dan is back on the grass and has been joining in the last couple of days. Each day that goes by he’s getting more and more confident.

“He’s not too far away.”

On Shaquile Coulthirst

“Shaq is back on the grass and running. Shaq might be a little bit further away due to the nature of his injury.

“He’s been limited as to what he’s been able to do. He’s got to have a mini pre-season of sorts.

“I’m still hoping to get Shaq back with us before Christmas, but if not before, certainly around that period.”

On Alfie Pavey

“Alfie has had a successful operation on his ankle and is now in a boot.

“Once he’s out of the boot he can start his rehab and we probably won’t see Alfie back until March time.”
