Scunthorpe assistant manager Ned Kelly has provided an update on Isaiah Osbourne after picking up a hamstring injury.The 27-year-old was substituted towards the end of Sunday’s 2-0 FA Cup victory at Forest Green.
Kelly hopes he won't be out for too long and has hailed the impact Osbourne has made on the team.
He told The Iron Player: “We’re still waiting to hear how long it’ll be but he’s got a problem with his hamstring so that’s a blow but we’ll just see what happens.
“He’s had a good impact on the team and that’s why I think it’s going to be a blow that he’s going to be out for a while.
“Hopefully it’ll be a shorter period than it could be but it’s always difficult to assess how long it’s going to be so we’re just hoping for the best case for him.”
Kelly revealed that all other members of the squad are fine following last weekend’s fixture.
Meanwhile with no game to prepare for this Saturday, the assistant boss has stated that the week has been mostly about getting extra work into the player’s legs.
He added: “It’s been a conditioning week this week.
“We’ve been getting a lot of work into the legs and then they’ll be back in at the start of next week as we prepare for the Crawley game.
“We’ve been working them nice and hard, getting a few things into their minds and getting across some ideas on the training ground of how we want certain things done.”
