Better news for Towler

Paul Towler, who suffered a serious knee injury against Braintree Town in late January, had some potentially good news from the specialist last week. The scan on his knee shows that the damage to his cruciate ligament does not appear as bad as first thought. He said, "The specialist thinks that it is only a partial tear of the cruciate ligament so when he does the arthroscopic surgery on my cartilage, he hopes to be able to stitch the cruciate ligament at the same time. If this is the case I would hope to be back in time for preseason training. If it is worse, then I'll be out for much longer.

"My knee feels a little unstable, but I can ride an excercise bike at work (he is a police officer). Luckily I was transferred from beat duties to training a few weeks ago, so the injury hasn't affected my work too much."
