WINGER Adam Page looks set for another frustrating spell on the sidelines after suffering an injury blow in Evesham United’s 3-1 victory at Barnstaple Town.

The former Cheltenham Town ace, who missed most of the 2016-17 season due to knee ligament damage, was taken to North Devon District Hospital’s Accident and Emergency department last Saturday.

Robins manager Paul Collicutt said he was unsure whether the 21-year-old, who joined Evesham on loan from Gloucester City last month, had hurt his ankle or leg but was poised to find out the extent of the injury.

“Adam ended up in A&E on Saturday so we are waiting to see exactly how bad the injury is,” Collicutt said.

“He got injured in the first five minutes after taking a whack but I am not 100 per cent sure whether it was his ankle or his leg.

“The lad has suffered some very bad injuries in recent seasons so we will how bad this one is.”

Collicutt also has doubts over striker Kye Simpson (knee) and keeper Andy Hannah (face) ahead of Saturday’s Southern League Division One South visit of Paulton Rovers (3pm).

But keeper Sam Gilder has returned on dual-registration forms from Worcester City while defender Will Tunnicliff turned down an approach from Cirencester Town.

“Kye picked up a knock at Winchester so I took a gamble starting him on Saturday,” Collicutt said.

“He only lasted 50 or 60 minutes so we will assess his situation. Andy took a whack to the face in the first half and had a cut lip.

“He was a bit groggy but managed to stay on and performed very well. I am hoping he will be OK too.”

The win at Barnstaple maintained Evesham’s position in the play-offs places but Collicutt challenged his players to keep their performance levels high against 15th-placed Paulton.

“There is only one team I fear and that’s ourselves,” Collicutt said.

“I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly from us.

“The thing we have got to do is get these lads to perform week in week out.

“If we can do that then we will give ourselves a good chance.”
