Caretaker gaffer Terry Skiverton has said that he might be able to welcome back skipper Joe Edwards for the game against Leyton Orient this weekend.

Giving his after match press conference following the defeat last night to Bristol City, Skiverton revealed in quotes carried by the Western Gazette that Edwards could now be set for a return.

‘The good news is that I can actually say that Joe Edwards – touch wood – will come through these next few days and I’ll be able to pick him. He’s only played one and a bit games for me so far in my managerial career and to have your captain out for that sort of length of time – with someone who has never been injured before – has been a kick in the you-know-whats.’

Skiverton went on to say again that all being well he would be back for this weekend, but so should be Stephen Kingsley who has recovered from his own knock – but both will be set for late scans and it depends on any reactions to training obviously.

‘But he’s back and Stephen Kingsley will be back as well and we’ll be able to go into that game a little bit stronger.’

The game does have significance in terms of being the proverbial six pointer as Orient only sit two points and three places above us.

They do however have two games in hand over us, with Colchester and Crawley having a game in hand – so a win could be absolutely vital for the coming weeks.
