Colclough’s knee injury “doesn’t sound great” says McCall

Scunthorpe’s Ryan Colclough looks set for a spell on the sidelines after picking up a knee injury in the victory over Bristol Rovers.

The midfielder had to be substituted towards the end of the first half, having gone down rather innocuously without another player near him.

Iron manager Stuart McCall has admitted that the situation isn’t looking good for Colclough, who was seen wearing a knee brace after the game at the Memorial Stadium.

“He was just on his own and his knee gives way, so it doesn’t sound great,” McCall told BBC Radio Humberside.

“He’s got a knee brace on and he’s obviously going to have a scan. For him and for us, we are having no luck with injuries at this moment in time.

“For Ryan himself, obviously the lad’s gutted because there was nobody near him and when your knee gives way, it’s not a great sign.”

McCall didn’t want to speculate too much but he did concede that it could be the worst-case scenario for the winger.

“We will have to wait on the scan results but it’s a real blow for him and for us.”
