Glovers boss Russell Slade reassured those present at Saturday's 2-0 home defeat against Portsmouth that the injury to central defender Scott Guyett was not as bad as first feared. Guyett went down after making a block tackle in a move that led to Portsmouth's second goal, and initially the stretcher-bearers were called into action. But Guyett limped off on his own, and Russell is hoping it is just heavy bruising.
Speaking to BBC Radio Bristol immediately after the game, Russell explained: "It is not as bad as I thought, I can tell you that. He's got a lump on the inside of his shin. Exactly how much of the muscle fibre that has hurt, I don't know. But I thought he'd probably done his knee in at first when he first went down and made the block but it doesn't appear to be that, so he'll hopefully not be too long."
