Yeovil Town manager Russell Slade has reconfirmed that the prognosis on Lee Morris's calf muscle is still for a layoff that is likely to keep him on the treatment table for the remainder of February. Morris came on as a substitute against Millwall on Saturday but aggravated a calf muscle problem whilst on the pitch, and the club have now decided they need to keep him out of football to avoid damaging the muscle even further. Speaking to BBC Somerset Sound yesterday, Slade says of the injury:
"It's three weeks that we're told. He has got a tear there. The MRI scan revealed a tear in his calf so we have had to take a step back rather than moving forward now. We thought he was going to be very close. He feels fine within himself. But obviously the dynamics of playing a football match at the right tempo means that he could do further damage that could put him out for longer. Obviously we want him back in contention as quickly as possible, particularly as I am mindful of the fact that we lose Leon Best before the end of the month."
