Harley might be out for rest of season

Swindon Advertiser: Ryan Harley Ryan Harley

RYAN Harley could be out for the rest of Swindon Town’s season with a hip injury.

The midfielder, who has made 24 appearances for the Robins since his summer switch from Brighton & Hove Albion, has missed Town’s last three matches after picking up the knock in training.

Swindon manager Mark Cooper told the Advertiser following his side’s 2-1 victory over Sheffield United on Saturday that the 29-year-old may not feature before the end of the current campaign.

“He won’t be involved for the foreseeable future. It could be (for the rest of the season),” said Cooper.

“I think he’s got a little bit of a long-standing hip problem. It’s a muscular problem in his hip.”

Massimo Luongo was absent for the weekend win over the Blades due to a calf strain, with Cooper saying: “Mass has had a sore calf for a couple of weeks and has been playing through it and we just felt to be fair to him he might have a slight strain and we didn’t want him to tear it and rule out any chance of him being involved for the rest of the season and maybe the World Cup.”

Meanwhile, Grant Hall has returned to training at Liddington following his nine-week lay-off with a calf injury and Cooper is keen to arrange a development game to give the Tottenham loanee a run-out.

He said: “He’s looking fine. We could do with a development game to get a look at him. We’ll try to get a couple of games fixed up in the next couple of weeks.”

I'm afraid i don't see Harley as a great miss - gives Luongo, Gladwin, and even Lee Cox to fight for a shirt alongside Louis T and Yasser

I think he has seen the performances that others have been putting in recently and he doesn't fancy the competition.

Offload.

Reminds me more and more of Hewlett every time I see him, a lot of fannying around with little or no result, rarely plays a forward pass. Shame really because he's technically sound.

Bang on bud and he also has that awful crab like sideways and backwards motion. We have been more direct lately and with a better defence the results show we are a better team for it. Yes sorry to say won't be missed.
