Listen to what Town boss Michael Jolley had to say ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Carlisle.

The Town boss confirmed that he is not optimistic about Harry Davis’ injury and is awaiting the results of a scan.

Speaking on iFollow, he said: “We think it is potentially quite a serious one. Fingers crossed that it’s not too bad, but we will have to wait and see.

“He is going for a scan and we are awaiting the outcome of that. But we are not very optimistic about it unfortunately.”

The gaffer also confirmed that Jordan Cook has got a slight problem and he is awaiting a full assessment to see how serious that might be.

Akin (Famewo) has suffered from concussion and the club have to follow the protocol with that. 

Speaking about the recent poor run of form, he said: “Firstly, on behalf of the players and the staff here, I have to face up to the brutal facts. In the past month we haven’t done well enough.

“Our performances, our form and our confidence have all been at a low level. We have to face that, understand why it’s the case and then try to address it.

“The second part of my job is to not catastrophise the situation.

“We have had ten games of a 46-game season. We are in a less severe situation than we were at the back end of last season, when we could have been relegated to the National League.

“In some of these games we have been close to taking points.”

He continued:“On Saturday, when Wes Thomas hit the crossbar, if that goes in we go 2-0 up with 30 minutes to go - then I think the outcome could have been different.

“And there have been other games where the small differences have gone against us.

“Thirdly, we have to see if the situation is capable of improving.”
