Record-breaking goal-scorer Scott Allison has dislocated his shoulder and faces a spell on the sidelines.

It’s the same one he dislocated midway through the 2018/19 season in an awkward fall at Stafford.

Allison, who has scored 127 goals for the Reds, said: “I was just messing about throwing a tennis ball before training and it popped-out. Although it’s the same one as last time I don’t think it’s as bad and hopefully it won’t keep me out for long.”

Manager Danny Grainger had praised Allison for his overall contributions to the team after he had scored his goal at Ossett last week to stand alongside Gareth Arnison as the top goal-scorer for Reds in the last 80 years.

He had been particularly pleased with how Allison had been developing an on-field partnership with new striker Reuben Jerome. Ironically both could miss the FA Trophy tie.

Jerome limped off before the end of the game at Ossett and Grainger says that he will be assessed ahead of the Glossop tie.

With Allison a certain non-starter it’s likely to mean an opportunity for teenage ex-Preston striker Louis Potts who has mainly been used in a substitute’s role so far.

At one point earlier this month Reds had five players out with injuries – Conor Tinnion, Dav Symington, Ceiran Casson, Jordan Little and Robbie Hebson. Four of them have been back in action with only Hebson still awaiting a return date.

Little, in fact, has had a couple of games in the Northern League for Penrith while Tinnion, Symington and Cassson all figured at Ossett -the last two from the bench.
