“He needs time out on the grass, building himself up with his Achilles, he can’t just go straight back in.

“There’s no need to rush him back.”

And added: “I’m very happy with the two we’ve got, Joe Anyon has been a real good back-up goalkeeper, good on the training pitch, good around the place.

“So those two I’m more than happy with them, Callum (Burton) and Joe.”
