PAUL Wotton has given his best wishes to Argyle captain Curtis Nelson, after the captain picked up a worrying injury against Northampton Town.Nelson dislocated his left elbow at the end of the Greens’ 3-2 victory against Northampton, in which goals from Peter Hartley, Andy Kellett and Lewis Alessandra appeared to end the game as a contest, until late strikes from Ivan Toney and Stewart Murdoch made it a nervy finish at Sixfields.
The 21-year-old appeared to fall onto his elbow whilst putting his body on the line to prevent the Cobblers from scoring a late equaliser, leading to worrying scenes as medics were called onto the field, and the defender was taken to a nearby hospital.
Following in the footsteps of his first team coach, Curtis wears the captain’s armband for the Pilgrims, and Wotton hopes the skipper is able to recover quickly from the painful setback.
“It is something to do with his elbow, but one thing is for sure: it will not be something minor, for Nelse to have to come off like that,” said Wotton.
“I would think he would have to have an x-ray, or the like. It is something to do with his elbow, which does not sound like a nice injury.
“I am sure Nelse has jumped in to block and something has happened there.
“He is a big, brave lad. Our best wishes are with him, and he is getting sorted out now.”
