During Yeovil Town’s 4-3 loss to Altrincham on Saturday, the main talking point was a nasty injury to Glovers’ loanee, Josh Neufville.

The Luton Town loanee was stretchered off in a leg brace in the 12th minute after a heavy tackle from Altrincham midfielder Matty Kosylo, who received a yellow card for the challenge.

Neufville confirmed via his own instagram account that he has a suspected broken ankle.

After the game, both Darren Sarll and Emmanuel Sonupe – who replaced Neufville – sent their support to their team mate.

Speaking to BBC Somerset after the match, Sarll said:“That’s such a shame for the lad because that looks like a long-term one. (Josh Neufville) dislocated and fractured his ankle.
“We had players in tears on the pitch, Tom Knowles was in tears. I have not got the stomach to view that type of incident. It is devastating for the kid, he’s got his career off and running with us. He will come back stronger and fighting fit but it is disappointing.”

Sonupe, who scored one of the Glovers’ three goals in the defeat said:
“Our thoughts go to him and we could tell straight away that it was not a nothing injury because of the scream, Josh never screams like that.
I just hope he can be back as soon a possible because he has been really good for us this season.
“Of course you are going to think about it, but at the same time there is a game going on and you have to get straight back in to it. Dwelling on that will probably only get you injured as well, I really feel for him”

Everyone at the Gloverscast wishes Josh well in his recovery and thanks him for his time at Yeovil Town this season.
