Lee Martin and Lee Gregory injury update

15 September 2014

Latest from the treatment room

"Obviously the players do not deliberately hurt each other, although Neil Harris says he got a weekly battering in training facing Paul Robinson which he felt gave him the best preparation for match days!"

"Even last week Mark Beevers received treatment after blocking a shot at point-blank range; this highlights how competitive the sessions under the Ollie and Birch are.

"Last season we had an example of Ed Upson injuring his ankle when he collided with a goal post whilst stopping a goal-bound shot in training.

"Injuries picked up in training will happen especially due to the intensity and competiveness of the sessions. The sessions have to be of an intensity to progress and maintain fitness needed for matches, and the data we have gained from the GPS and heart rate monitors have been very impressive so far, with increases in distances covered.

"Obviously we will update on Lee's knee progress as we go along.

"Lee Martin unfortunately has torn a knee ligament and is looking at a spell on the side-lines which will mean him missing out on this month and next month as well.

"Lee Gregory has a slightly troublesome hip at present which is irritable, so we are pulling him out of training to let this settle so it does not become a persistent concern.

Lions physio Bobby Bacic currently has two players in the treatment room - Lee Gregory and Lee Martin - and here he brings us up-to-date with the very latest on their injuries.
