TYLER ROBERTS PICKS UP INJURY
Forward set for spell on the sidelines.
Tyler Roberts is facing an extended period out after picking up an ankle injury in training earlier this week.
Initial scans show that forward Roberts, 19, has a small crack on his shin which will need further assessment and consultation with a specialist this week before the club can provide an update on a timescale for Tyler’s return to action.
Head Coach Paul Heckingbottom said: “This is disappointing news for all concerned, especially for Tyler.
“However, with the help of the experienced medical team at Thorp Arch, he will come back stronger than ever.
“We would love to have Tyler involved as soon as possible but, particularly with our younger players, the club has a duty of care to ensure we don’t rush these situations because we expect Tyler to be an important player for us for years to come.”
