Injury update: Aden Baldwin to undergo scan

8 October 2018

Cheltenham Town's on loan defender Aden Baldwin will undergo further assessments this week to determine the extent of the injury he suffered on Saturday.

Baldwin suffered a knee injury towards the end of the match at Milton Keynes Dons and was carried from the field on a stretcher.

He was able to travel back on the team coach and underwent an x-ray on Saturday night that revealed no fracture. He will now be given an MRI scan to determine whether there is any ligament damage.

"We are waiting for the injury to settle down and Aden will then have a scan later in the week," said Cheltenham Town's senior sports therapist Gavin Crowe.

"We have been in touch with his parent club Bristol City to co-ordinate our management of the injury and we will know a lot more once we have the scan results.

"At the moment it is difficult to determine how long he will be out for until we have those results."

As one defender heads into injury re-hehab another is finally on the way back after a frustrating few weeks out. Robins fans have yet to see Summer signing Sean Long in meaningful action but the right-back is now on the road back from the ankle problem suffered in pre-season.

"We are happy for Sean to step up his training and it's now about building him up towards match fitness," said Gavin Crowe.

"He will be working over the next couple of weeks to get him ready for a return."

Craig Alcock has now shaken off the injury that kept him out of the last two matches so the Robins are the closest they have been all season to having a fully fit squad.
