Gillingham striker Gavin Tomlin could be out for the season
Gillingham boss Andy Hessenthaler fears striker Gavin Tomlin may
not return this season.
The front-man suffered a blow to his ankle early on in the game
at Oxford on Saturday - just minutes into his return from a
Hessenthaler has been plagued by injury problems all season and
could now see the 29-year-old - on loan from Dagenham - sidelined
"Gavin was on crutches on Monday so couldn't come in," said
"I would be very surprised if he plays this weekend and there
has to be a question mark over whether he can play this season.
"It's a blow and that's been the story of our season.
Sometimes we look at it and wonder if we are doing things wrong
"The physios, James Barker and Steve Allen, have been
questioning themselves and they are disappointed with the amount of
injuries we've had. I question myself week in, week out, because
you analyse things.
"They are wondering if they have done something wrong but if you
look at our injuries, it's been injuries you just can't legislate
for. With Gavin, it's a tackle and Garry Richards the fella has
stamped down on his leg and broken it. Barry was a tackle and so
was Spiller. The list goes on.
"It has been amazing and is the worst year I have ever had in
football with injuries."
