Central defender Efetobore Sodje has joined midfielder Darren Way on the sidelines for the next few weeks. Three days after a fractured eye socket at Gillingham ruled Way out for four weeks, Sodje's medial ligaments strain at Leyton Orient has meant that he will sit out the next three week's worth of matches.
Speaking to the official site, manager Steve Thompson said "Medial knee ligament injuries are common in football but to lose Sodje so soon after the Darren Way injury is another big blow. We will carry on though, for as I said yesterday, these things happen in football and you have to make the best of things."
Thankfully the Glovers have strength in depth that they can call upon. Alejandro Gabriel Meloņo has been waiting patiently since his return from suspension, Adam Lockwood has been unlucky not to feature a great deal this season, whilst Scott Guyett has just returned from a loan spell with Aldershot Town. A further alternative is to bring Colin Miles inside into the centre, and place one of Nathan Jones or Michael Rose into the left-back slot.
