Callum Cockerill-Mollett Suffers Potential Injury Setback

10:30 pm Tuesday, 3 December 2019
Walsall development coach Brian Dutton has this evening hinted that Saddlers left-back Callum Cockerill-Mollett may have suffered a 'hair-line fracture' following an incident during Tuesday evening's EFL Trophy - Round Two victory over Chelsea U21s.
20-year-old Cockerill-Mollett, who was making his twelfth first-team appearance of the season as the Saddlers and Blues met at Banks's Stadium, limped off before the match had reached the ten-minute mark with Kory Roberts eventually taking his place in the team.

The Leicester-born left-back was treated on the pitch before moving to the medical room as the match continued. The club hasn't confirmed an official diagnosis but coach Dutton spoke to the press and admitted that it "doesn't look great" as club fans and officials await further news.

Speaking to the assembled media after the match, Dutton said; "There’s no early diagnosis but it doesn’t look great. There’s rumours that it could be as bad as a hairline fracture.

"That’s worse case scenario, so figures crossed that it’s not that and it’s something a little bit less serious. It’s a case of waiting to get assessed once everything calms down. Hopefully good news in the future, fingers crossed for him."

The match itself saw the Saddlers bounce back from going two goals down to snatch a late win as Dan Scarr crashed the ball home in second-half stoppage time. You can find our Match Report, HERE!
