HEREFORD defender Ryan Green may see a specialist this week to solve his Achilles injury.

Green was forced to play on Saturday due to Jack Deaman injuring his ankle.

But Green admitted he was in pain throughout the whole game and he needs to get it sorted.

“I’ve got chronic tendonitis in my Achilles, so I’m really struggling at the moment,” said Green.

“I might have to see a specialist to try and get it sorted out because I played in pain during the whole game.

“I had surgery on my Achilles about eight or nine years ago after getting similar symptoms, but a few of my ex-colleagues said that an injection should solve it for a year or two.”

Hereford sustained a disappointing 1-0 defeat against Slough Town, meaning that the Bank Holiday double header against St Neots and Merthyr have become even more important.

But Green is confident the Bulls can turn it around.

“Slough were up there last year and showed that they are a good, solid unit,” said Green.

“There wasn’t much in it and I think a draw would have been a fair result.

“The games come thick and fast in this league. St Neots will be another long journey and then there’s the local derby on the Monday which I’m looking forward to.

“Merthyr have lost a few players, but they’ve signed a decent ones like Stuart Fleetwood and Oliver [Davies] has gone back there because of travelling issues I think. They will be up there and will be around the play-offs I’m sure.”

Green believed there were only about four good teams in the South & West Division,whereas every game this season will be tough for Hereford.

“We’ve now got a week to get a few fit bodies back and then we go again,” said Green.
