Faversham manager Ray Turner waiting to hear how serious Liam King's knee injury is

Ray Turner fears Liam King may be facing a lengthy lay-off.

The Faversham Town striker limped off early with a knee injury in the 4-1 Ryman League, Division 1 South win at Molesey on Tuesday night, and the club are waiting on a scan to determine how serious it is.

Boss Turner said: “It looked as though he twisted it and the early signs are it could be a cartilage problem.

Turner believes Faversham’s previous play-off experience will be crucial as the business end of the season beckons.

He added: “It will certainly do so if it’s all about taking it to the final game. We have 14 games left – eight at home and six away – and if we get to 94 points, I am sure that will be enough to make it.

“It means we need to finish with a hell of a run but all the other teams have still to play each other. We only have Greenwich Borough and Lewes.”
