Neil Aspin admits he feels for top scorer Dale Johnson after the striker limped out of Town’s win at Worcester

Johnson went down clutching his ankle in the first half as he cleared a corner from inside his own six yard box.

After several minutes of treatment he was helped off the pitch and straight into the Town dressing room.

Aspin said afterwards that the injury looked like medial ligament damage, meaning Johnson could be out for several weeks at a time when the Shaymen face a huge number of fixtures.

“It’s unfortunate because he looks like he’s done his medial ligament which means he will be out for a few weeks,” he said.

“No player wants to get injured and I feel for Dale. He’s had a lot of injuries in his career.

“We’ll have to look at the injury a bit more when it settles down,” he added.
