George expects long Roberts absence
Blue Square Premiership,
Cambridge United boss Jez George is expecting right-back Kevin Roberts to be out of action for a prolonged period of time.
The 22-year-old played in his side's opening match against Forest Green but has missed the last two games with a hip problem, which has led to him to see a specialist, though the club are yet to learn the full extent of the injury.
"We won't know the exact prognosis until Tuesday, he will need some further scans but my gut feeling for that is not good," said George.
Jonathon Thorpe is the other right-back on the club's books but he is still at least a month away from returning following knee surgery, so Rory McAuley, normally a centre-back, will continue to fill in.
