Yeovil Town have lost the services of influential midfielder Darren Way for a period of three or four weeks after the Yeovil vice-captain was diagnosed with a leg injury during the build-up to Saturday's game against Hull City.
Gary explained immediately after the game: "Darren has got a stress fracture which is unfortunate. He's been playing with it for about two or three weeks. We had it diagnosed through a scan because he was having a few problems and once you know that, you can't carry on. I won't play Russian roulette with someone that I know has got a stress fracture. He'll be out for three or four weeks and we'll have to cope with it. It's a non-weight bearing bone just on the outside on his lower leg. Darren's a good healer and I'm sure he'll be back at the earliest possibility."
The Glovers also lost Hugo Rodrigues during the game, and although the immediate post-match diganosis was that it was a back injury, later prognosis is believed to cite the injury as possible rib damage.
With Roy O'Brien also expected to be side-lined until January and Chris Giles and Andy Lindegaard still undergoing rehabilitation, the Glovers squad is rapidly shrinking in size, but Gary refused to be panicked saying: "We're getting thinner, but I'll worry about it on Monday."
