GEORGE Forsyth could make his comeback when Worcester City renew acquaintances with derby rivals Bromsgrove Sporting on Monday provided his broken wrist stands up to full training.

The 21-year-old suffered the injury in a behind-closed-doors friendly with Pershore Town the Tuesday before Christmas and has been training with a protective cast since.

Forsyth was an unused substitute at Haughmond four days later and in the 3-3 Boxing Day draw at home to Sporting with joint-boss John Snape keen to seek medical clearance before risking him.

The ex-Gloucester City midfielder has since seen his specialist and can play but Snape does not want to take an unnecessary risks.

“George has the all clear to play but we will take things carefully,” he said.

“He has a chipped bone in his wrist which has limited his involvement over the past couple of games. He has a support cast to help him play but of course, there is always that risk of further damage.

“The health and welfare of the player comes first and it has not had much time to knit back together yet but he has seen his specialist and had another X-ray.

“If he can take part in full training without any problems and feels comfortable afterwards then we will look to get him back in.”

Snape has received one boost ahead of the return on Monday (3pm) with Alex Tomkinson’s hamstring tweak seemingly healed.

“Alex has been passed fit to train this week,” said Snape. “We did not want to gamble on it because we were worried about him suffering a full tear.”

Meanwhile, Snape admitted to still feeling the “mixed emotions” evoked by Tuesday’s thriller at the Victoria Ground that saw City surrender a three-goal advantage against Bromsgrove.

“We did well to go 3-0 up and that should not be underestimated but were guilty of some elementary mistakes in certain parts of the pitch and the couple of changes they made had an impact,” said Snape.

“The first Bromsgrove goal and the timing of it was key. They had the momentum from there but once it got to 3-3, we were guilty of missing a couple of great opportunities to pinch it at the end.

“Conceding three goals when we were in full control of the game was disappointing and will be addressed in training.

“It was a great atmosphere and it left us with mixed emotions. Some people might think we were lucky not get beaten with the way the scoring went but we were unlucky not to be four or five up at one stage.”
