Mark Cooper is relying on the robustness of his younger players for the Glovers fixture pileup.
Speaking at today’s press conference the manager praised his remarkable players amidst ongoing uncertainty. When asked about the signing of Ryan Law and his versatility for the rest of the season he said: “That age group is usually more robust. We’re relying on a lot of players playing a lot of games. We’re trying to stay fit and be durable.
“It’s difficult, we don’t have a physio at the moment. Some players don’t know if they’re injured or not injured, they’re just going through it and giving it everything they’ve got. They could give me so many excuses at the minute, but they come in every morning. just get on with it and put themselves forward to play. Full credit to them, its a remarkable effort.”
How we’re in this position with injured players playing through the pain barrier, a depleted squad and no physio is anyone’s guess. For the second season in a row, uncertainty reigns supreme and after the departure of Ben Richards-Everton to Scunthorpe and an injury to Max Hunt and presumably eluding to the ongoing takeover situation, Cooper said he wouldn’t be able to bring anyone else in.
Speaking on Richards-Everton’s loan move he said: “I think its difficult when you know you haven’t got the support of a lot the crowd and that can really effect your confidence. That was an issue for him. Great Pro, lovely lad and also wanted to move back further North.”
“Max Hunt’s injured, he twisted his ankle over a week ago now. It is what it is. We cant bring anyone in and the minute and we’ve just got to get on with it.”
