Molesley Out For The Season?

Last updated : 21 November 2009 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

With a persistent foot injury, that has hampered Molesley in recent weeks, keeping him out of the Cherries side, is facing a testing time which could either see him return to the side, or sit out the rest of the season.

Molesley has been given some air-cast foot wear to see whether the injury will resolve itself or not. If it doesn't, then the prospect of an operation looms.

Molesley is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "If it responds, the boot would come off after six weeks and I would be able to slowly build up my training with a view to being back by the end of January. “The worry is though, if the boot comes off and it hasn’t healed, they would have to operate and that would probably keep me out for the rest of the season. “The specialist treating me had a discussion with a group of other professionals and they all came to the conclusion that this would be the best course of action because they didn’t want to operate just for the sake of it. “There is the chance of a stress fracture developing and there is also some swelling between the bones. The existing problem was an old injury and some cartilage had grown over it. “The high-tec boot is like being in plaster. It keeps the weight off the foot and will hopefully heal everything".
