SAINTS boss Justin Holbrook has given an update on the players who have picked up injuries during a gruelling Easter period.

Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook damaged his knee and Mark Percival pulled a hamstring on Good Friday, while Luke Thompson suffered an injury on Easter Monday.

Thompson was due a scan today to assess the full extent of the damage.

But Holbrook suggested there could be changes to the squad this week anyhow, to take into account the effects of a gruelling Easter.

Holbrook said: “Louie has damaged his knee and will be out for around six weeks, Mark Percival will be out a similar time with his hamstring.

“Tommo is getting scans today on that ankle injury so that could be a few weeks at least.

“Hopefully it is not too bad but we are not sure at the moment. Hopefully he will not need surgery – they usually just put them in the boot for a few weeks to stabilise it.

“We will know more later in the week.

“Tommy Makinson suffered a back spasm, which got worse at half time so he had to come off.

“Zeb Taia and big Al missed on Monday as they were just getting freshened up from a few bumps and bruises.

“They will be right to go this week.

“Other than that we have just the same bumps and bruises that every club has after a busy Easter.

“We will just work closely with the medical and performance staff on it.

“I do not rest players for no reason. I rested a couple last week and I will do that again this week.

“The fact that both games have been played in really hot conditions, how well we have played and the intensity of those games we have to be smart about it.

“They were not just normal games and so there could be a few changes this week.”

Theo Fages should be fit for a return, but Holbrook will assess the squad later in the week.
