RECENT recruit Adam Page could be out of Evesham United’s plans until after Christmas.

The 21-year-old former Cheltenham Town winger, who showed plenty of promise during a loan spell with Redditch United last season, initially joined on loan but has since become a fully-fledged Robins player.

Page started all five matches before being sent to hospital to have his foot and ankle checked after the trip to Barnstaple three-and-a-half weeks ago and while nothing was broken, he has yet to receive the all clear.

“Adam took a whack and ended up in A&E down there but thankfully, the X-ray showed no breaks,” said manager Paul Collicutt.

“He has had some rotten luck on the injury front. He did so well at Cheltenham before breaking his leg and it took him a while to get back to fitness.

“Maybe he did not quite get back to where he wanted to be.

“He went out on Saturday (at Fleet) but you could tell he was not ready. It seems to be one of those where he feels fine and ready to go one minute only to feel more pain.

“I would imagine he is two or three weeks away from being in contention.”

Collicutt is more hopeful that defender Will Wellon can recover in time to face Street at the Jubilee Stadium on Saturday (3pm), the first of three straight home games either side of Christmas.

Wellon “has a reasonable chance of being okay” with the match fitness of captain Linden Dovey set to be assessed after his comeback at Fleet. Joe Tumelty remains unavailable.

“Saturday was tough but sets it up nicely for three home games on the bounce,” said Collicutt.

“All three will be there or thereabouts and it will be difficult but at least we have a few results behind us going into this spell.

“Street are used to winning and have a very experienced manager in Richard Fey. It will not be an easy task by any stretch and we will have to be at our best if we want to win the game.”
