Max Hunt seems certain to miss the club’s final game of the season after suffering a reoccurrence of the ankle injury which kept him out for three-and-a-half months.

The central defender limped off after 25 minutes of the Somerset Premier Cup final win over Bath City on Tuesday night.

Speaking afterwards, caretaker manager Charlie Lee confirmed the injury was to the same ankle.

He told BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins: “It is the same ankle, we are hoping it is not as bad, but I said to him it is the best time to do it (at the end of the season) because it just ruins your holiday.

He will be fit and ready to go in pre-season, he’s done brilliantly this year, 30-odd games with a long period out through injury.

He and Staunts (Josh Staunton)!have both put their bodies on the line to come back and play, most places they might have seen the season out and concentrated on next season.

That shows you the type of character (Max) is and he’s going to be a great player for Yeovil in the future.”

The win over old rivals Bath seems likely to be Lee’s penultimate in charge with him expected to be in charge for Sunday’s trip to Altrincham for the final match of the National League campaign.

Speaking two-and-a-half weeks ago club owner Scott Priestnall said the caretaker boss would be spoken to as part of the recruitment process for the club’s next boss.

Lee said: “If tonight is my last game or the next one is my last game, I don’t know, but it’s been an unbelievable journey and I am expecting to be thereb for the last game at the weekend.
