Wright out for "seven to 10 days"

11 December 2012

Knee problem will keep Wrighty out for a short time

Mark Wright is likely to be unavailable for selection for Saturday's home match against Carlisle United but Shrewsbury Town manager Graham Turner does not expect the winger to be a long term absentee.
Wright was forced off injured midway through the first half of last weekend's 2-2 draw at Crawley which paved the way for fit-again Paul Parry to replace him after three matches out with a hip injury. 
"Mark's damaged some ligaments in his knee," said the Town boss. "It doesn't look as though he will be fit for this weekend but it's not considered too bad at this stage.
"Maybe in seven to 10 days he should be okay again so he should be fit for the Christmas matches.
"Paul's needed some football. He's obviously got a lot of ability and a lot of experience. If he's back to his best then he will be a big asset coming back into it"
Young defender Cameron Gayle, on loan from West Bromwich Albion, was ruled out of the Crawley game owing to injury and the manager revealed he was on course to return to training at the Greenhous Meadow later this week.
"I think he will probably start training with us again on Thursday," he said. "It might come just a little bit too late to be considered for the Saturday match in a starting position.
"But I thought young Connor Goldson did okay and was very steady at the back. He made some good decisions."
