Injuries strike again!! UPDATED

Last updated : 28 October 2003 By Mike Robins
After the defeat at Yeovil, it has been revealed that Derek Holmes will be out for a period of 3 months to repair damaged cartilage in his left knee.

Neil Young is out for 3 weeks following key hole surgery to resolve ankle problems.

Alan Connells first team return has been put back by at least another 4 weeks with news that he is to under go an operation. This time the op is to repair some damaged knee cartilege which was sustained during a reserve match against Bristol Rovers last month. This new injurt leaves Sean O'Driscoll with just 15 players for the trip to Tranmere given that Browning is out (suspended), as are Young and Holmes (both injured).
