Harry Worley now expected to be back in early March, while striker Adam Marriott is set for return to full training at the end of next month
Harry Worley has suffered a ‘minor setback’ in his comeback from a ruptured ACL injury.
The centre-half has been out of action since the first week of the League 2 season, and may not be back for Boro until early March after twisting awkwardly in training last week.
A scan ruled out a serious injury to his knee, but he has suffered Grade 1 damage to his medial ligament and this is likely to put him back by up to three weeks.
Jon Ashton could be in line for a recall to the Boro squad for their match with Cambridge United next weekend.
The defender injured a tendon in the recent match with Bury, but could be back in training next week.
Following minor knee surgery, striker Adam Marriott is expected to return to training at the end of March.
