Iron dealt Morris blow

Scunthorpe winger Josh Morris has been ruled out for a minimum of two months with a fractured fibula, according to BBC Radio Humberside.

Morris left the Keepmoat Stadium on crutches following Scunthorpe’s 3-0 defeat to Doncaster last weekend and Iron boss Stuart McCall delivered the bad news at his press conference this afternoon.

McCall said: “Unfortunately for Josh and unfortunately for us as a club it’s not good news. He has fractured his fibula down the side and also strained ankle ligaments. He’ll be out for a minimum of two months and is in a boot at the moment, and on crutches.

The 27 year old had only recently returned to action having spent a month on the sidelines with a broken jaw.

“It’s really disappointing for Josh, who was out for six weeks with a fractured jaw recently, and then there’s now this – which was also innocuous”, McCall added.

“I originally thought it was a challenge he did in the early part of the first-half, but it wasn’t that. It was in the second-half, when we was running to get into the box, and he just planted his foot and felt the pain.”
