GRAY A DOUBT FOR BRAINTREE

10 April 2014

But Wall could return, says Still

John Still has admitted that leading goalscorer Andre Gray is doubtful for the Town's game with Braintree on Saturday.

The 27-goal forward was withdrawn during the first half of the Hatters' 2-0 win over Tamworth and Tuesday.

"It's not as bad as we first thought," Still told the gathered media at the Town's training ground on Thursday. "It's not really a hamstring injury, we think it's more of some nerve damage. He'll be back before the season."

Meanwhile striker Alex Wall could return to the Hatters squad after recovering from a knock sustained whilst on loan at Dartford. "He'll make a decision on whether or not we bring him back now," said Still. "He's trained this week and he'll train tomorrow [Friday]."

The manager has also been delighted with the recoveries of both Luke Guttridge and Jonathan Smith, the latter of who was seen kicking a ball before the warm-up on Tuesday.

"It's great to see," said Still. "They are further on in their recuperation that we thought which is great but we're taking it easy with them."
