Ryan Lowe reveals Joel Grant's hamstring injury is not serious and he should be back playing within two weeks ...
“He’s just under a grade two, a minor tear in his hamstring, so we are hoping he's not going to be too long.
“Possibly 10 days maybe, which is good for Joel. He’s feeling better every day.
“I think we have got him off at the right time because he said if we hadn’t done that he would have carried on.
“We got him off the pitch straight away, so I think it’s a blessing we did that. Rather than him missing four to six weeks, we are probably going to miss him for two.
“I’m gutted we are missing because he has been flying in pre-season.
“He scored against Crewe and he was doing very well against Colchester but we have got other lads in there now who can step up and get an opportunity.
I’m sure Joel will be back with us in the next few weeks."
Ryan Lowe talks about fringe players going out on loan and a possible new signing before the Newport game...
“There are certain lads who have been asked to move on as well and get some game-time.
“Whether they stay or go, they won’t be treated any different. It’s up to them.
“But if I’m one of them I’m looking at Jephcott scoring goals and Ryan Law playing and scoring goals.
“They will be giving me selection headaches pretty soon because I can call them back at any opportunity. If there is any sort of injuries I can call them back.
“We will have a look at one or two more and see if they feel they want to go out because I’m not pushing anyone out, it’s up to them.
“I’m not going to say ‘You have got to do this, you have got to do that’ because it’s their call.
“I would want to be playing games. I know their agents are onto it, trying to get them out to get some game-time.
“If the right club comes along for them to go to, then great.
“If they come to us and say ‘Look, I want to go here and play some games’ and we are happy with the solution, then great.
“As for an in, if we are going to do anything it will only be one more. Maybe we could have that before the weekend, maybe not.”
