Boro await news on captain’s injury after centre-half was taken off on Saturday with ‘suspected broken ankle’
Jon Ashton could be out of action through injury for a few months, according to Stevenage manager Graham Westley.
The Boro captain was forced off the pitch during Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Port Vale when he collided with goalkeeper Chris Day, and in his post-match interview Westley said that the injury was a ‘suspected broken ankle’ before adding that he doesn’t know the extend of the injury but that it will keep the defender out for some time.
The news will be a blow for Stevenage ahead of a busy Christmas schedule, especially as their next six matches are against teams either in or around the relegation zone.
Speaking about the injury, Westley said: “He’s bad, Ash. I don’t know how bad, yet, but it takes a lot to force Ash off and I think it’s going to be a fairly lengthy one and it’s not good news for us.
