Defender Liam Ridehalgh has admitted his frustration following the knock that will now keep him out until after the season has kicked off.

The left back suffered the injury in our pre season friendly against Rhyl and it’s expected he will be out for up to the next six weeks, which obviously rules him out the remainder of the pre season campaign and the opening league game at the very least.

Speaking to the Official Site about the injury he sustained, Ridehalgh explained.

‘It was very unusual. I didn’t really know how I did it. I just went to cross the ball and planted my right foot to allow me to cross with my left and I’ve felt a sharp pain through it. It’s sore at the minute, and it’s been just over a week since I did it and it should be about six weeks so I’ll work hard and hopefully I can come back as soon as possible.’

Ridehalgh was speaking at his attendance at the Kids Open Day on Sunday and as part of his recovery he had a solid protective boot on which certainly drew some looks.

He’ll only be in that boot for the next 10 days or so and then he’ll move to a smaller cast for a week to ensure that he recovers properly without complications, and then he can start to put weight back on the foot and see how he goes.

Hopefully the recovery will be swift and he can add to manager Rob Edwards selection problems sooner rather than later.
