Willem Tomlinson ruled out for up to four weeks after minor knee ligament damage


Mansfield Town midfielder Willem Tomlinson will be out for up to a month after a scan on his knee injury confirmed minor knee ligament damage.

Tomlinson jarred his knee in a crunching midfield tackle in last night’s 3-1 home defeat to his former club Blackburn Rovers. After the club’s medical staff looked at the swelling today, it was decided to have it scanned to see the extent of the damage.

The scan revealed minor knee ligament damage, but the club hope he will be fit before the worst-case-scenario of four weeks.
Boss John Dempster said he would see how the rest of the players were recovering today before he decided on a starting XI to face the Hull City as the Stags continue their tough spell of three home games in seven days against Championship opposition.
Next Tuesday the Stags face local rivals, Nottingham Forest in their last pre-season friendly ahead of the new season which starts with a tough away trip to Newport County on the 3rd August.
