STAGS look set to be without midfield ace Gary Roberts for at least a month after injuring his ankle in training this morning.

Roberts is to have an MRI scan on the injury and boss Paul Cox said: “Gary will be a big loss.

“He went over on his ankle and it ballooned up. We thought he has broken it at first but now it looks more likely it is ankle ligament damage.

“But he will probably be out for at least a month.

“Hopefully we may get one or two back fit after tomorrow’s reserve game at Wrexham.”
