Crawley Town Football Club can issue the following update on the injuries of Ellery Balcombe and James Balagizi.
On the 6th of October, the club reported that James had returned to Liverpool for tests after the midfielder was forced to withdraw from training on his return from international duty. The medical tests revealed an injury, and last week, James had successful surgery for an inguinal-related groin pain. James’ recovery time is currently set at five weeks. The midfielder will spend that time with his parent club before returning to the Red Devils for training.
Ellery Balcombe returned to training this morning after missing the majority of the season through injury. The Brentford shot-stopper was forced off with an injury in the first half of Crawley’s opening Sky Bet League Two match against Carlisle United. Ellery is available for selection for Saturday’s match against Mansfield Town.
