Skipper Matt Taylor faces six weeks on sidelines

20 October 2014

Cheltenham Town captain Matt Taylor will miss at least six weeks' action after tearing a hamstring in Saturday's 3-2 home victory over Northampton Town.

The 32-year-old central defender suffered the injury in the 26th minute, when he was replaced by Jack Deaman.

Taylor, a summer signing from Bradford City, missed the second half of last season with a foot ligament injury. He was making his 15th appearance for the Robins.

Senior sports therapist Ian Weston said: "As he was going into a sprint, Matt felt a pop in his hamstring.

"He has a palpable mid-belly tear in the muscle which will rule him out for six weeks."
