Injury Blow For Lecointe

STRIKER Matt Lecointe is facing a late start to his 2013-14 season after suffering a knee injury.

The 18-year-old England Youth international was hurt during the Pilgrims’ Development XI’s 1-1 draw at Truro on Wednesday, after which he limped away with his leg in a brace.

“He’s being assessed,” said manager John Sheridan.

“I don’t think it’s a nice injury for the kid, which is a crying shame – he’s worked his socks off and got himself fit.

“We’ll have to wait and see. We’re still waiting for the results of a scan. We’ll keep our fingers crossed and do the best we can for him.”
