Crawley Town winger Jordan Roberts is going to spend up to another month out of action.

The midfielder has had a scan which reveals he is suffering from a hairline fracture of his toe.

The former Peterborough and Aldershot player has been struggling with a toe injury all season and had been limited to just two appearances before returning to action on Saturday from the bench in the 2-0 win over Luton Town.

But the latest forecast indicates he will be out of the side for two to four weeks.

Dermot said: “It’s a big disappointment for Jordan to get this injury just after he had come back into the squad on Saturday.

“It’s going to keep him out for a couplea of weeks at least, but he’s a fit lad and once he gets the green light to resume full training it won’t be long before he’s up to speed.”
